At the entrance to Clarence Park in Bury is a large rock, said to have arrived there through the actions of ice age glaciers.  This area of Bury was once known as Fleet Street, indeed Martins’ Branch at 1 The Rock was known in its days as a branch of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank as Bury Fleet Street Branch. The Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank Manager at that time was Mr P G Gow, with Mr W A Brown acting as sub manager.

In the 1960s, Martins Bank has four branches in the Bury, the main office is found at 26 SILVER STREET, with sub branches at TOTTINGTON, and of course The Rock.  A separate branch is located at Bury Bridge, ELTON.   The Rock makes it through the merger with Barclays, although the building is nowadays home to an insurance company. Nevertheless, Barclays still has a link with this part of Bury with a branch situated nearby at 1 Central Street, The Rock.
