When Martins Bank Limited is created in 1928 by the merger of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins, a second Sowerby Bridge Branch at 21 town Hall Street is inherited from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank. By 1930 it is clear that two branches is one too many for the town, and Martins takes the decision to close its business at 7 Town Hall Street.
