Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

The Stone house below the chapel use to be a bakery.  I don't remember it then but I've seen the old ovens in it when I was a kid.

I remember my grandma would make her own bread, one or two loaves a day I think.

In the old days people would have baked their own bread.  They would of had an oven in the wall outside, like the wells.  You wouldn't of had an oven indoors then.
