It is however closed down after only fourteen years in service, the decision being taken by Martins Bank in 1936.   More than thirty years later, Martins decides to open a sub-Branch in Throckley once more, this time choosing ALLENDALE HOUSE.  In both cases Throckley operates as a sub-Branch to Newburn, and the newer of the two opens across the full banking week.  Apart from opening and closing dates, we have very few details about Martins’ orignal sub branch at Throckley, so as ever we ask, that if you have any images or information to contribute, relating either to this or to any of the 970+ buildings used as Branches of Martins Bank, please do get in touch – at the usual address –
