Bank of Liverpool and Martins

Sep 1.jpg

The Bank of Liverpool and Martins opens a sub branch at Hendon in Sunderland in 1924.  It is one of a long line of branches in this part of the North East, many of which come to Martins Bank through the merger of the North Eastern Bank with the Bank of Liverpool. We have most of the branch details in the specification section below, but no images.

If you can help with images and/or information about this or any of Martins Bank’s 930+ other branches, please do get in touch with us at the usual address . Hendon sub-Branch is closed by Martins in 1964, and replaced by another one nearby in GRANGETOWN.  Whilst this is a modern replacement, it is still sadly surplus to Barclays’ requirements, and is closed in the Summer of 1969 before the merger takes place…
