Dear RDCA,

My mother has asked me to scan the attached documents to send to you for the Archive. She does not have the original letters these were typed onto a document and she has copied them in her own hand.

Regards, Sharon Langston

For Mrs Jean T Potter (Nee Wallaker)

Indeed it does still exist. Breade House is currently on the market as a Grade II listed building and situated in Apton Hall Road.

I was looking up Bread House as the Abbott family who lived there are related to me. I was so pleased to find these letters. Moses would have been my great, great uncle.

Do you know if Bread House still exists?
