Life goes on, and as much as we all enjoy revelling in the past, we are still travelling in one direction only – forwards.  As times change, our lives and the places in which we live them change too.  So it is, that as technology makes it possible to do just about anything at home on any number of electronic devices, the traditions at the heart of our towns and villages are slowly dying – or “changing” if you prefer.  Here at Martins Bank Archive, it is always just a few minutes before 1969, but out there in the real world, Martins Bank’s former network of Branches is reducing as the harsh realities of the modern world make these buildings redundant.  We will of course mark their passing, and on this page, you will see which ones have fallen on their sword since we first went online in 2009. Now that there are fewer than 60 Martins Branches still open, you can see which have survived by clicking HERE.
