Right in the middle of this block of terraced houses in the Hurst Cross area of Ashton is Bradley's Bakery. Not only do Bradleys sell bread, cakes and the most delicious pies, but they also bake them on the premises. You can catch a glimpse of the wonders of the bakery through a doorway behind the shop counter.
This photo is unusual in that it shows some parking spaces available in front of the shop. There is usually a queue of customers inside the shop, several of them people who were passing by on their cars. At ;unchtime the queue can be out of the door. That has to say something about the products on sale!
The family business began in Oldham in 1960, moving to the present location in 1981. The delicious range of pies on offer include Pork, Beef, Steak & Cowheel, Cheese & Onion and Pork & Bury Black Pudding! If you want to see photos of these pies, they why not indulge in a little food porn by visiting the Bradley's Bakery web site?
