Deliveries into the Village
Milk was delivered into the village, from nearby farms on a horse and cart as May Garner explains

The milk was carried in churns, like the one shown, and villagers would bring out jugs to be filled from the churn.

Bread was also delivered into the village by horse and cart, although one villager remembers walking to Loughton pushing a pram to collect the family's supply of bread for the week.

Agnes Stephenson remembers.
There were no fridges, freezers, microwaves, toasters, electric kettles. Houses had larders, pantries, or cellars which were used for keeping the food cold and fresh. Cellars were also used as shelters during Air Raids.
