Building for the future…

1967R.jpgBy 1967, Martins Bank’s Branch at Victoria Road Cleveleys begins to feel - if not look -  its age.  In line with the architectural thinking of the day (seen by many now as disatrous) a new Concrete and glass Branch is commissioned and located in the shopping area known then as The Crescent, and today as Crescent East. Even with traditional bricks thrown in, the building still lacks elegance, and the concrete squares look tired, dirty and weathered already.  Built to last however, this Branch is still open today, and it is possible to glimpse a hint of Martins’ past in the centre of the modern day fascia – the unmistakable outline of the Martins Bank Coat of Arms.  (See “Then and Now” below). We can’t speak for Barclays’ internal layout, but here is a glimpse of how things are when Martins Bank first moves in to its brand new Cleveleys Branch…

Some things from the past can never be fully erased – Martins Bank’s coat of arms is, thankfully, one of them!
