Martins Bank’s sub-Branch at Wrexham Cattle Market opens in 1959 in this wonderful corrugated-roofed building. Redolent more of a public convenience than the Branch of a Bank,  Martins’ customers can use it for just three hours on a Monday, which we will assume to be cattle trading day.  Quite a few of the Bank’s Cattle Market/Auction Mart branches survive merging with Barclays, and some of them even remained open into the early part of the Twenty-First Century. Wrexham, (not quite so lucky), is kept open until 1975.
