There was another good bakers shop on Burnley Road higher up than that, Greens used to go in there when I worked at Townley's Joiners in the sixties, they also had a shop in Ossy at the bottom of Haworth St opposite the clinic, they decided to expand and moved into the Vine Mill Ossy, think they were taken over by the same firm that own Hollands

Hi, I used to babysit a little girl called Deborah who lived there above the bakery. This was in the early 1970ís..I agree that the meat & potato pies Mr Kerr made were THE BEST. They were good times in Accy.

Hi, I used to babysit a little girl called Deborah in the flat above the bakery in early 70ís. I seem to recall she had beautiful golden red haired..is that you? Mr & Mrs Kerr were from Scotland & he was a superb baker. ..agree with you about the pies����
Where are you now? Hope you are well.
