Walkers the Bakers

All our bread is naturally fermented and hand moulded using the best ingredients, so we’ve been artisan for years. The long fermentation process gives great flavour and helps digestion. All our bread and rolls and a large selection of cakes are vegan, so come to Stroud or Nailsworth and enjoy some of The Cotswolds’ favourite bread and cakes.

About Us

 

A Brief history of Walkers The Bakers, Stroud. A family business for three generations.

 

As you may know, Don Walker, of Walkers The Bakers, sadly passed away last year in 2019. He successfully ran the bakery from 1969, up until his (semi) retirement in 2010.

There has been a bakery at 22 Kendrick Street for over 100 years. In 1939, the lease of the shop was taken over by Don’s uncle, Percy, and modernised in 1948 with a double decked steam tube oven which is still in use today.

His mother, Margery, was Percy’s sister, and she and Don’s father, Wilf, moved back to Stroud and persuaded Percy to sell them the lease to the premises in 1961. Walkers The Bakers was opened that year.

Margery was from a family of bakers, Percy and another brother baking in Cheltenham, and her uncle baking in Amberley.

Don moved with them and did his training with his uncles in the bakery in Cheltenham. He took over the Stroud bakery from his father, Wilf, in 1969 eventually buying the premises from him in 1984 where he worked hard for 40 years making it into what we know and love today.

With the addition of ‘The Café Above’, which is situated on the first floor of 22 Kendrick Street, Walkers is now run by Don’s son and daughter, Jamie and Jodie.
