Whilst jogging and cycling (I’ve been cycling for the past week due to a temporary tendon problem that prevents running) here and there, I’ve noticed that several local bakeries have folded over the past year or two.
There used to be one alongside the River Esk.
There used to be one in the square at Musselburgh.
And there used to be one in St Leonards.
There’s still one in Stoneybank, Musselburgh, where I bought my meat pie today. Very good it was too.
It’s small wonder that the local bakeries are closing, because the supermarkets sell such wonderful bread nowadays – olive loaves, walnut loaves, etc.
