Berwick upon Tweed is the last outpost of Martins Bank in England, remaining the closest Branch to Scotland, after it sells its interest in LEWIS’S BANK in 1967, losing the Glasgow Branch of that bank.  At various points in the twentieth century, up to the merger with Barclays,  the Berwick upon Tweed area has a number of Martins Bank sub-Branches and services.  These are found at the main Branch at HIDE HILL, and also at LOWICK, Berwick Corn Exchange, and HOLY ISLAND.   There are two further sub-Branches, at TWEEDMOUTH and SPITTAL which are closed at the beginning of World War Two, and not re-opened.  Berwick Corn Exchange, which nowadays is a housing development, houses a Branch of Martins Bank until 1968.
