Whilst we can’t tell you much about Martins Bank’s sub branch at Denton Burn, we are fortunate enough to have in our collection, part of the original fibreglass coat of arms sign from outside the building.  Amongst the other items rescued from the branch are the coin scales and also the counter leaflet display unit shown below, which we have filled with the1960s leaflets that would have been displayed at this sub-Branch during its short life.  Special thanks to Jeff and Pauline Williams, for their forward thinking when they originally rescued these items!

Denton Burn opens in 1964, as a sub-branch to NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE WINGROVE Branch. As usual at this time, the only form of Bank Advertising permitted has to be in newspapers and magazines, so the arrival of a new Branch of the Bank is announced in the local press, in this no frills, informative advert (right). When it comes to the 1969 merger of Martins Bank with Barclays, a number of areas are “overlapped” – that is to say that each Bank has a Branch in the same town or village. In a significant number of cases, Barclays actually closes its own Branch in favour of the location and/or facilities of the Martins Branch, but sadly not in the case of Denton Burn which is but six years old when it is permanently closed on 12 December 1969…
