Martins Bank 1928+

Sep 1.jpg

1960 COA.jpgThe presence of Martins Bank in the Staffordshire town of Leek dates back to 1928 when a branch there is acquired from the merger of the Bank of Liverpool and Martins with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank.  It is this origin that places Leek within the Bank’s Manchester district. In 1960 sub-Branches of both Martins and Barclays opened at Leek’s Cattle Market at Barnfields.   Martins opens for business for four hours each Wednesday.   When Barclays takes over, there is room and need only for one sub-Branch, so the Martins office closes early in 1970.
