Due to its success, she took on unit 2b at Station Business Park in Hoveton in August to use as her kitchen.

She is now moving the retail side there too, with the new bakery opening on Wednesday, October 6.

It will offer a range of sourdoughs, sandwiches, pastries, doughnuts and coffee. 

While she is leaving the Coltishall bakery on Saturday, October 2, it is set to become a café with a new tenant who will stock Miss Wood's pastries.
