There were 2 bake shops on London Road, Beardmores and Marsh's.  Marsh's still bake their own bread.  I do love fresh crusty bread, it's the companion of your life.  As you get older you don't need as much bread, my husband did though.

This shop in Longton just over on the market, they make it (bread) and sometimes there's a crowd waiting outside to get a piece. They make their own bread and cakes, everything. I'm a potter, I don't know anything about bread.

As a kid we would have chip butties on a Friday because my dad didn't get paid until Saturday.  You could get a loaf of bread, half a dozen eggs and a bag of chips off the milkman and you didn't have to pay him until Saturday.  That was always Friday night tea as we didn't have any money left.

We only ever had white bread, now I only ever eat brown.

I remember Burgess's bakery and the Smithfield cattle market across the road and I also remember the Sutherland Arms pub used to have a thatched roof and all the farmers on market day used to park their horses and traps there. I remember when all the traffic used to come through here (High Street) this was the main throughough fare.

Bread now is full of water, I have a slice of toast from supermarket bread.  When you've toasted it it's gone down so little.

I bought him a breadmaker he didn't use it for awhile, now he doesn't like any other bread now. He used to make bread, we've still got the big bowls he used. It must be ten years ago and then I think he gave up because I wouldn't eat his bread, it was too dense, you now what I mean. He's varied it from time to time, he gets an ingredient he likes and keeps at that.

My husband works for one of the bakeries at Trent Vale, Mr Kipling. They have bread brought into the factory to help out with ingredients, he's an electrician. Well it's actually the main companies called Premier Foods and the different areas have different names, so this one in Trent Vale is called Manor Bakeries.

" I bought a supermarket loaf yesterday. I don't know what they put in it. I read the label, you know, it was like the Gettisburg address.

All I put on mine is flour, water, salt, yeast and a drop of olive oil ."

I've always enjoyed cooking and have tried baking bread.  About 4 or 5 years agos I got a book on 'leven' breads and using wild yeasts.  Since then I've been making my own bread and the taste of it is just phenomenal.  Supermarket bread just doesn't come close to it, I also think it's a healthier bread.

They gave me a bread maker, I did it, it came out all wrong, something about the yeast, and the water. It came out like a brick. That's the bread that I threw in the garden and it nearly killed a bird. My Mum made bread, and she used to say you need two loaves for you kids! Oh bread with tomatoes, bacon, lovely dipped in the fat.

Apparently our flat in Wolstanton combined with two neighbours buildings used to  be a bakery. It's Chetwynd St. There's a big house on the corner, a hairdressers and the flat behind, opposite St Margarets' Church. It was the hairdresser who told  me. Apparently her shop was the oven, there's a big chimney on top.

After I left University I had a few temping jobs.  One of these was a bread taster at Allied Bakeries on the A34.  My job was to collect samples of bread from the production line and leave them on shelves and watch them go mouldy over 4 days.
