Craven Bank

Sep 1.jpg

Bingley Branch is full of character, and is opened in 1883 by the Craven Bank.  Twenty-three years later, the Craven amalgamates with the Bank of Liverpool, and the chain of mergers that leads to the modern day Martins Bank has begun. Bingley Branch is fondly remembered by former Martins Staff, who know that by having a whole District in “God’s own County” Martins can’t be all that bad.  Our thanks go once more to Julian Taylor who has kindly provided the charming 1940s image of the Branch at Bingley shown below (centre).  The Barclays collection of Martins Bank photos provides the other exterior and interior shots of the Branch.

Sadly, Bingley does not survive to see its own centenary, and is closed by Barclays in 1972, at the ripe old age of 89!
