The Remaining branches…

On 15 December 1969, the “Appointed Day” in the Barclays Bank Act, hundreds of Martins Bank Branches turned overnight into Branches of Barclays. Ever since, that number has reduced as ways of doing business along with competition, trends, and any number of factors backed up by the ever more sophisticated abilties of the computer have all done away with the need for there to even BE bank branches. Just a little more than twenty years into the new Century, we find most banks are closing the equivalent of one branch a day EACH – that’s easily over 2000 a year. That we are still left with more than fifty of the seven hundred Martins Branches that were subsumed by Barclays says much about the strong foundations of the Banks that themselves came together to create the modern-day Martins Bank in 1928. We thought that it might be a fitting tribute to those branches still standing, and even those who are on the brink of being given the chop to feature here, showing in bricks and mortar, just how strong the name of Martins remains, more than fifty years on from the merger…
