Further Information: The Manchester & County Bank opened in 1862, and in 1934 it became the County Bank. In 1935, after only one year as the County Bank it changed names again to the District Bank. During that year, 1935, it suffered major subsidence, as with many other buildings in the area. The building has had many other occupiers since then, but it still has a pole on the roof with the initials "CBL" on it.
