Welcome to One Mile Bakery Hale

Hi, my name is Matt Townley. Put simply, I love baking, I love good food and I love to cook for my family and friends – I come from a big farming family of passionate home cooks. When I was younger I was told by a very wise person: “If you want to show somebody that you really love them, cook them a good meal”. I have always lived by this mantra. One Mile Bakery Hale is all about the joy of delivering delicious homemade, handmade food from my kitchen within my mile and teaching inspirational baking classes so you can bake amazing bread at home to share with the people you love.


We deliver one mile from our location in Hale

Matt starts deliveries within his mile on 16 May, taking amazing homemade bread, soup and preserves by bike to address near his home in Hale. Deliveries are weekly, on Wednesdays (5.30-7.30pm) to local subscribers – this is the only way to get OMB bread!

Subscriptions run for a month (four deliveries) or three months (twelve deliveries) and celebrate the very best of stunning local, seasonal produce.

Each week brings something different, so a subscription offers a chance to sample a wide range of artisan breads, seasonal soups and stunning preserves. It’s all handmade at home, and delivered to you at home in person. The FAQ page gives more information about how it all works. We’ll be releasing Hale slots for delivery very soon – follow us on social media for updates, sign up for our newsletter or drop us an email and we’ll in touch with more information.

Thanks so much for a superb class! The gift voucher was the best birthday present ever and it was great I could choose the class I wanted to do – always loved French bread on holidays and now I can make the classics at home. The croissants vanished with coffee the morning after the class! Merci beaucoup for hosting us so well – great to meet everyone and chat over that lovely lunch.

Lardy cake recipe – comfort food to welcome in Autumn

One of my earliest food memories is lardy cake. When I used to visit my Nanny and Grandad, Nanny would often say ‘and I have some lardy cake, would you like some my love?’ in her warm Wiltshire burr. I never, ever turned it down. ‘Jolly good’, she’d say, as she cut a huge slice
