A new authentic artisan bakery is set to launch in the village of Bradwall, just a short distance from Sandbach, creating jobs and breathing new life into the Village Hall.
Bradwall Bakehouse will produce incredible artisan bread for the local community and plans to use locally-sourced ingredients that support the rural community it serves.
The new bakery, located at Bradwall Village Hall, is currently undergoing refurbishment with the aim to open for business in late spring 2022. It’s hoped that bakehouses will create jobs in the area as well as become a hive for artisan bakers in the region seeking to display their talent by supplying restaurants, pubs, and shops.
Bradwall Village Hall was originally built by Lady Diana Barlow in 1972 to provide a focal point for the village and to support the thriving farming community. As of 2016, the world-famous Foden’s Brass Band took up temporary residence, but the building was facing closure due to fewer visitors and volunteers. Covid-19 then intensified the need for change.
The late Lady Barlow’s grandson, Woody Barlow, purchased the village hall in order to revitalize and launch the new Bradwall Bakehouse. As a result, he is now overseeing the development of facilities for Foden’s Brass Band and the enhancements to the hall.
Woody Barlow, Director of Bradwall Bakehouse, said:
The bakery is actively recruiting experienced and passionate bakers to bring the vision to life. Bradwall Bakehouse is scheduled to open in late spring and click and collect options are expected to be made available for locals shopping for personal use.
A range of quality artisan bread will also be available from the bakehouse to restaurants, pubs, delicatessens, shops, small supermarkets, and farm shops. Bakers and parties who are interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website www.bradwallbakehouse.co.uk
