Martins Bank is no stranger to Bristol, and its connection with the City dates back to 1937 with the opening of BRISTOL CITY OFFICE at Corn Street, followed three years later by a Branch at Whiteladies Road, Clifton. The Bank opens Broadmead in 1957, and Branches at NEWFOUNDLAND STREET, QUEEN SQUARE and  UNIVERSITY open between 1960 and 1967.

Bristol is also the home of Martins Bank’s SOUTH WESTERN DISTRICT OFFICE, and BRISTOL TRUSTEE AND INVESTMENT OFFICE. There is no visit to Hartcliffe by Martins Bank Magazine.  This Branch fares well under Barclays, turning from self accounting sub to full Branch in 1969, and staying open until the end of 1991.
