Colour Logo - True Colours 1959.jpgCarrville is opened in 1967 joining Durham University and Langley Park as another sub-Branch to Durham Market Place.  These are the dying days of Martins’ branch expansion programme, and the money problems that will force the Bank into bed with a rival are just around the corner.

Although not given self accounting status, Carrville opens across the full six day banking week, with only slightly reduced hours.

This would imply a steady business from local traders and private customers.  A number of these brand new sites are destined to be closed almost as soon as they are opened, although some, such as Carrville, EATON (Norwich) and WALLSEND THE FORUM  are handed over to Barclays virtually as-new, and are still going strong today. It was announced by Barclays that Carrville was to close its doors for the final time on 25 November 2016, which means that by just a few months, this sub-Branch did not survive to its fiftieth birthday!
