A DELIVERY bicycle, bun presses and dough mixers are among the items from a former bakery being sold at auction.

Bonnetts Bakers, a Somersham-based business for more than 200 years, closed in May and director David Bonnett blamed the “domination of supermarkets”.

Now the contents of the High Street shop, bakery and kitchen are going under the hammer in an online auction on Wednesday, July 13.

The bicycle is one of a number of items listed as “historical” by auctioneer W&H Peacock.

Others include potato sack scales, an original JS Fry display cabinet, a cake decorator’s rotating table, a Georgian bureau and a four-drawer oak filing cabinet.

A bacon slicer, two sets of scales, ovens, freezers and a pastry roller are among the bakery equipment being auctioned.

Meanwhile, kitchen goods in the sale will include two chest freezers, a coffee machine and grinder and three insect killers.
