Martins Bank 1928+

Martins Bank spends a small fortune in the 1960s upgrading old branch premises, sometimes completely re-building them. New branches are opened, and old ones brought into the twentieth Century. At Newcastle Wingrove is it necessary to move out of 446 Westgate Road and take temporary premises a short distance away at West Oakwood.

It typically takes anything up to eighteen months to complete a Branch re-building project, and on 22 July 1963, work on the new look wingrove Branch is complete and the temporary premises are vacated.  Sadly we have not yet been able to track down an image of the temporary Branch premises, but on our WINGROVE page you can see how the permanent Branch looked both before and after its “makeover”…
