Martins Bank’s commitment to support agricultural customers with a wide range of banking services and facilities includes opening a new wave of cattle market, (or auction mart) branches all over the country. It doesn’t matter how small the branch accommodation, the main thing is to provide on site banking on the day of the livestock sales.  Consequently many of the Bank’s Cattle Market branches look like an array of garden sheds!  The sub-branch at Acklington Auction Mart adds to the portfolio of Amble branch, which already has outlets in the villages of  Red Row and Warkworth, and in 1963 another sub-branch is added at RAF Acklington. Unfortunately, we have been unable to find any images of the Branch at Acklington Auction Mart, but we do have the original advertisement used by the Bank in the local press to announce the opening of this new service. Alongside the advert is the 1959 issue of FINANCE FOR FARMERS AND GROWERS, Martins Bank’s annual publication for agricutural customers.  If you can help with photographs and/or memories of this or any of Martins Bank’s 1000 branch buildings, please do get in touch with us at the usual address – gutinfo@btinternet.com.
