1967 Finance for Farmers and GrowersA Branch opens at Salisbury Cattle Market in 1962, offering four hours of service for customers each Tuesday.  All of Martins’ agricultural branches keep a good stock of one of the Bank’s most successful specialist finance booklets – “FINANCE FOR FARMERS AND GROWERS”, which by the time Salisbury Cattle Market branch is closed in 1968, is into its fifteenth year of publication.  The booklet is so popular, that Barclays continues to produce it after the 1969 merger until the late 1980s, preserving another small but very important link with Martins Bank.
