Boldon Colliery is a large mining village in County Durham, with a postal address of Newcastle upon Tyne.  There is a long and distinguished history of mining here, which is meticulously documented at the Durham Mining Museum’s web site – A sub-Branch to Tyne Dock is opened at Boldon Colliery by the Bank of Liverpool and Martins in 1922, but it lasts only until 1932.

The Bank opens fifteen new branches and sub-Branches in 1922, but many small sub-Branches are closed in the period 1930-1933, and this seems to coincide with the Bank incurring huge costs in the rebuilding of 68 Lombard Street London Office, and of Head Office in Liverpool.
