Main Street Historic Walk – Site 8

In 1927/8 Robert Leslie built a new bake house which was sold to Ernest Mansfield who lived here from 1932/3 until 1934/5. In 1944/5 George Dines owned the bakery until 1965 when Alf Brennan became the new baker. Since then several bakers owned the bakery: Dave Cridge, Mr Farley, Mr Van Der Sluis and Alex Bilchuris who in 1980 completely renovated the Margaret River Bakery and Cafe.
