Waterfoot Branch and its sub-Branch at Whitewellbottom come into the possession of Martins Bank in January 1928 when the Bank of Liverpool and Martins Limited amalgamates with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank Limited, to create the modern day Martins Bank.

This area of Rossendale doesn’t show on our map, so we’ve highlighted the general area to give you an idea of where we are talking about!  Our Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank Records for 1922 state that Whitewellbottom opens Monday Wednesday and Friday, but gives no times. From Martins Bank’s Annual Report and Accounts for 1940 (above) we have confirmation of the Branch status and the name of the Manager. Whitewellbottom closes in 1957 at a time when Martins is renovating or closing a number of outlets ahead of the second southwards expansion of the Bank.
