Adelphi Bank

Sep 1.jpg

The Adelphi Bank opens a branch at at 323 Chester Road Cornbrook in 1891 and eight years later merges with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank. The Adelphi Bank opened several Manchester Branches, all of which will find their way into the portfolio of Martins Bank.

Cornbrook becomes a Branch of Martins in 1928. In 1957 Martins closes the original branch and moves across the road to Nos 248-250 Chester Road. Sadly we have no photograph of the original branch, and if you can help with images or memories relating to this or any of the 980+ buildings that housed Branches of Martins Bank over the years, please do get in touch with us at the usual address
