Regular listeners will know that the Bourbon biscuit has hogged a lot of the Home Truths limelight over the last few weeks.
Have a 'Peek' at the biscuit appreciation society --: http://www.biscuit.org.uk/index.htm
I haven't been listening since recently . Some programs just don't seem to be the same after
a long time presenter changes. Take Brief Lives on 5Live on a sunday morning. Adebayos voice grates.
Weren't thet made down the road here? I remember years ago when I had a job measuring roads that all round Lynton Road smelled of custard creams and borbons. And big ta to Phoney for Sailing By - been after that for yonks.
I had a few old tins up on ebay a couple of years ago, including a little Peek Frean sample tin, and it was bought by the curator of the Pumphouse Museum, which holds lots of archive stuff and artefacts from the Peak Freans factory.
The Web site is http://www.thepumphouse.org.uk/enter.shtml and you can click on the 'Peek Frean' link on the left hand side to get a bit more history and some reminiscences - the area was known as Biscuit Town when the factory was at its peak (peek?).
Looks like an interesting spot for a visit, with a lot more local history, natural history and archeology stuff to look at.
