Where you can’t see the wood(en bank) for the trees…

image042Well camouflaged, and looking as if someone has just built it from LEGO®, Martins Bank’s sub-Branch at Dolgarrog offers a kind of road-side assitance to those in need of cheques cashed, and takings to be paid in. Martins is well known for having branches in remote, scenic, and especially idyllic parts of the country, and this part of North Wales does not disappoint.  The main branch at Llandudno sends a member of its staff to Dolgarrog every Monday and Friday.  You can see one of them below, but unfortunately we do not have his name.

If you can help identify this member of staff from the late 1960s, please do get in touch with us at: Opened in 1948, Dolgarrog lasts a surprisingly long period of forty-four years, before closing its doors for the final time in September 1992.
