The early records of the Craven Bank show they have an account holder in the village of Gargrave as long ago as 1792.  By 1906, when the Craven is merged with the Bank of Liverpool, it has fourteen full and twenty six sub branches – including one at Gargrave – to add to the ever expanding Bank of Liverpool portfolio.

Gargrave survives the merger and makes it into the 1990s as a sub branch of Barclays.  You can find out all about the Village of Gargrave as it is today by visiting the excellent .
