image076A snowy day at Hazel Grove, and as this particular sub-Branch has been opened in 1965, before the liver bird is removed altogether from Martins’ branding, it proudly bears the full Martins Coat of Arms on its outside wall. Hazel Grove is a self accounting sub to Stockport, and enjoys full banking hours six days a week, along with the added responsibility for processing all the work that comes in over the counter.  In 1968 Mr M F Phillips is appointed Clerk in Charge with Limited Repsonsibility, but sadly his image is not published and we cannot bring you a staff gallery below. We also currently have no details of who was in charge of the Branch between 1965 and 1968.  As ever, if you can help with images or information concerning this or any Martins Branch, please do get in touch with us at the usual address -

When Barclays and Martins are merged at the end of 1969, Hazel Grove is kept on as a Branch of Barclays, but it is downgraded from self accounting to basic sub-Branch and remains open until 1977, having a total life as a Bank of just twelve years.
