Glenwood - a fairly typical name for a house in Westmorland, more often than not the sort of name that conjures up a small guest house or a farm.  In this case it’s Martins Bank’s sub-Branch at Brough which opens for business for only two and a half hours each week, as an extension of the service offered by Kirkby Stephen branch.

Having acquired the branches of Messrs Wakefield Crewdson, the Kendal Bank in 1893, the Bank of Liverpool wastes no time adding to the network of small branches and agencies throught Westmorland.

In the smaller image, the outside of the building has been brightened by flowers, but the sign that tells everyone that the days of Martins are over can also be seen to the left of the door. Glenwood does make it through the merger, but as a bank it is closed forever in 1972…
