It is sad to think that internet banking and shopping has all but killed off the wonderful human contact fostered by some of Martins Bank’s smallest branches.  Once the hub of the village, amenities such as the corner shop, post office and bank have spent more than thirty years in slow but steady decline.  What life you could witness, and what gossip you could hear at one time, from the farmers and other customers at places like Wharfedale Auction Mart, now seems lost forever, buried under the anonymity of the information super-highway.  Shame on us indeed…
