Lancaster, Auction Mart ext 1969 Hours of Business.jpgSituated close to Lancaster Moor, this area of the City is known as Golgotha, and it is believed that witches were transported from Lancaster Jail to meet a grisly end here.   However, not even witchcraft can save the Bank from its inevitable merger, and as if by magic the name above the door will be changed overnight in December 1969…

As sub-Branches are staff from their parent Branch on a changing basis, it is not possible for us to provide staff galleries on most of our sub-Branch pages.  If you worked for Martins, at Lancaster Farmers’ Auction Mart Sub, we’d love to hear from you. please do get in touch with us at the usual address – gutinfo@btinternet.com.  The Auction Mart itself moved to the Golgotha Premises in 1965, and as North West Auctions, it continues to support local agriculture today.  With changes in banking and the removal of cash from much of the Auction Mart Business, Barclays closed the doors at Lancaster Auction Mart sub-Branch in March 2011
