1966 Refit and Rebuild MBM-Au66FC.jpgWrescam is one of three trading estate branches run by Martins Bank over the years.  The first, at Gateshead Team Valley is a large office built on an enormous new estate in 1938.  In 1947 it is Wrexham’s turn, with a branch on the new trading estate.  A previous sub branch had been opened in nearby Overton on Dee in 1923 but this was closed by 1931.   Wrecsam Trading Estate branch survives a little longer, being closed down in 1957, and Martins waits another eight years before opening at Hucclecote estate in Gloucester in 1965.  The success of any “specialist” branch depends on how it can sell itself to the customer, and on the actual business traffic in the area.  Many branches of this type have ended up being little more than experiments, but for all that, they were at least worth a try. We have no business hours recorded for this branch, and no images - so if you can help, please do get in touch with us at the usual address:
