I need some help finding out about this former bakery and the building its self.

It's used by the Hospice Charity as a charity shop, the manager would like to know any info about the buildings former use, she is writing an artical on the building and I would like to help. I will be writing to her with any help I may get on here.

One of the bakery's ovens  has been uncovered, there are two small ovens to the right of the main one, they are still covered up.

The building was used as a second hand shop and a hair dressers too.

You can email me, just look at my profile for the email ad
dress.  Thanks.

There is another old bakery along the High St. too.
The oven, you can see this at the back of the shop.
