|The bakery delivered bread to Little Brickhill and to about a dozen places in Fenny Stratford, as well as Great Brickhill. Later on, deliveries were extended to Bow Brickhill after the Baker in Simpson retired.
Cakes on sale in the shop were mainly from Lyons: a British Rail lorry brought two boxes each Saturday. on Wednesdays, only one batch of bread was baked and currantcakes were made on the premises These were very popular. The shop also sold flour, butter, eggs and even chicken and pig feed!
Flour for the bakery came from Newport Pagnell, but Orchard Mill, Great Brickhill, on the Ouzel near Stoke Hammond, supplied the chicken and pig feed on sale in the Bakery. Orchard Mill burnt down during the Second World War.
