One Year - One Barge - One Goal
A female lead project aspiring to create a floating bakery and provide support to women from all walks of life.
Being based in the galley of the Sailing Barge May, the bakery will create sourdough produce for our guests and in time, to be pre-ordered for collection for when May arrives in a port near you.
Sailing Barge May was built in Harwich by Cann's in 1891 to carry grain and flour for her owners the Miller's Cranfields. She remained in this work until being sold to Tate & Lyle in the 1960's. A history connected to basic baking ingredients stretching over 120 years of her 130, we think it makes perfect sense to keep that connection going.
So we are giving it a year, to see if others might also see and want to realise this vision with us.
It is important to us that the ingredients we will be using are sourced from producers who care.
Working with a number of passionate souls we will be building up the network of producers, millers, bakers and transporters.
We will keep you updated
Baking on a Barge
The galley will be producing sourdough bread on a regular basis once we are underway.
In the meantime we are hosting regular baking opportunities which we will be taking enquiries for.

The Galley is where the kettle is put on
for the cups that are ready
to offer a warm welcome
for all who come aboard our May
to pause just for a while
