Louth Museum Lecture – A History of Myers Bakery
A History of Myers Bakery and Their Traditional Products
This lecture will be held in the Methodist Church.
Michael Myers is the fourth generation of a Derbyshire family who moved first to Alford in 1901 to run a six-sailed mill and shop. Myers Bakery has provided an important part of Horncastle’s trade since 1969. Nowadays it is a significant element in the town’s attraction for shoppers, not only for delicious bread and cakes but also because they have expanded to run a delicatessen and cafe. Their plumbread is widely stocked in shops in Louth and further afield.
The talk will include the Lincolnshire history of the firm, and samples of the recipes that have remained a secret will be available to taste.
