Haverton Hill, which is a sub-Branch to Billingham, comes to Martins Bank through the merger in 1914 of the Bank of Liverpool and the North Eastern Banking Company.  This might look like the corner shop, and it’s also a little bit bleak to say the least, but don’t be fooled by what look like dirty windows - some of it is at least a reflection of the view from the other side of the road!  On the face of it this little Branch would seem to have enough of what today is referred to as “footfall” – that is enough customers to make it economically viable. By 1969 the Branch is still operating across the six day banking week, albeit on reduced hours.  Barclays takes it over, but this little outpost simply isn’t viable, and time is called on Haverton Hill in 1972.
