Slade Lane is an original branch of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank, and one of a large number of Manchester City branches that form part of the modern day Martins Bank from 1928. Situated on the corner of Portland Road and Stockport Road,  Slade Lande has full branch status until 1934, when it is downgraded to sub-Branch status.

We believe the parent Branch to have been Longsight branch. Slade Lane is one of a number of smaller Branches to have been mothballed for the duration of the second wold war, but which were then not re-opened.  We have also assumed full banking hours across a six day working week for slade Lane, but we will continue digging for more information about this branch.  If you can help with images or information about this or any of Martins Bank’s 930+ branches, please do get in touch with us at the usual address –
