Moorend Bakehouse

 

THE BAKEHOUSE ON THE MOOREND ROAD

The property was offered for sale in 1866 and was described as dwelling-house and bake-house and nine cottages adjoining. This must be the Old bake-house now derelict and the nine cottages in The Alley under the arch which were still there in 1871 but have since been demolished.

After these pictures were taken the oven was removed and just the oven doors remain against the back wall

The nine cottages known as the Alley can be seen to the right of the land marked as 64.
