Wearhead is the sub-Branch to Martins Bankís ST JOHNíS CHAPEL office. Unusually the opening hours of these two offices are arranged using a combination of morning and afternoon opening times across the six day banking week. Itís a bit like having one branch split over two locations.Opened by the North Eastern Banking Company in 1905, Wearhead will survive the merger with Barclays by about six months, and thus go to extremes to be helpful at least until the end of Martins Bank.Inside, the branch is bright and airy, and free of bandit screens, making village banking even more personal and friendlyÖ
