The Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank opens a sub branch in the Syke Side area of Haslindgen in 1923, five years before the merger with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins that creates the modern day Martins Bank. Barclays’ records indicate that under Martins Bank, Syke Side is operated as a Sub Branch to Haslingden until its closure in 1932.
