There are few places as tranquil as the Handmade Bakery next to the canal in Slaithwaite to have breakfast on a bright and sunny Saturday morning. It’s part of an old mill and has bags of space inside. It’s all open plan so you can see the busy staff baking and preparing food and usually groups taking baking lessons too. The food is all healthy and fresh and you’ll walk away feeling enriched and ready to take on a walk up the scenic canal. Just don’t forget to pick up a loaf to take home.
