Eastham, which opens in 1931, and  LITTLE SUTTON (1933) are satellite branches to ELLESMERE PORT – with one manager in overall control of all three branches, and Clerks in Charge posted in the two villages to handle the day to day work.  These branches are joined in 1963 by a new outlet at BROMBOROUGH.  At this point business is brisk enough for each of the sub branches to open for a full banking week, including Saturday morning. Martins Bank’s presence in this area is certainly comprehensive.

As the use of cheques and CREDIT TRANSFERS builds steadily, each is also a self accounting sub branch – responsible for processing its own day’s work on site.  Eastham is certainly a handsome looking branch and it continues to offer banking services well beyond the merger, closing in June 1992.
