Bromley the Bakers

Bromley the Bakers.
There was a time when visitors to Cookham back in the 1930’s I remember on a day trip say from London by train to spend the day by the river. A great many would finish up their visit with a cream tea at Bromley the Bakers before catching a train back to town. It was also a meeting place for ladies of the village while in the village doing their shopping either at Budgen’s or the International Stores.
The shop itself had been operating as a Bakers Shop for a good many years going way back to the middle 1800’s. Together with Deadman’s, at Carmonta Bakery in the Dean they both kept the village well supplied with all its baked goods.
