Martins Bank 1928+

1928R.jpgWhen Martins Bank Staindrop opens as a sub-Branch to Barnard Castle in March 1928 it is a comparitive late-comer. There are already three more - at BUTTERKNOWLE, COCKFIELD and GAINFORD – and these were opened by the Bank of Liverpool and Martins between 1923 and 1925. Gainford and Staindrop open on Tuesdays, and Cockfield and Butterknowle open on Fridays.  The demands on the staff of most British companies to join the War Effort means that Staindrop is amongst the numer of the Bank’s smaller Branches that are “rested” for the duration of the Second World War, by being shut down. Staindrop lasts until the time of the merger with Barclays, who already have a sub branch nearby and therefore do not need to keep two open.
