Bank of Liverpool and Martins

Sep 1.jpg

In the 1960s, Skipton is the hub of Martins Bank’s operations in Craven District, and controls four sub branches including Cowling, Gargrave and Grassington. In 1926 the Bank of Liverpool and Martins Limited has opened another new sub-Branch, this time at the Auction Mart in Skipton. Although the town of Skipton itself has five different banks, at the Auction Mart there are just two.

Martins Bank’s here Branch may look humble, but it is practical for purpose, and continues in service right up to the merger with Barclays.  Not a penny wasted, and not bad at all for what, in anyone’s eyes, would appear to be not much more than a small potting shed in Yorkshire. In later years the idea of these small branches looking so neat and compact is taken up by some banks who actually issue “miniature bank” money boxes to children!
