The Makers Story

delicious high quality crafted biscuits based on traditional recipes

dunk [duhngk]
verb (used with object)
1. to dip (biscuit, cake, doughnut etc.) into coffee, milk, or the like, before eating.
2. to dip or submerge something, someone, oneself, etc., in a liquid: She thinks it's vulgar to dunk. So let's dunk her in the pool before dinner

Makers and Merchants have created our very own biscuit recipes and baked them in the traditional hand-made manner in partnership with a master baker from Yorkshire.

We went to a family business which has been making biscuits for over 100 years.

Tracing the bakery’s beginnings back to humble premises in the Victorian seaside resort of Morecambe, in Lancashire. Many of their recipes were created by Annie Wild who ran the original bakery while managing a boarding house and bringing up three boys. Her eldest son John Wild moved back to his Yorkshire roots in the 1920’s, where Annie joined him to open a shop in Haworth (think Bronte country, and The Railway Children). In 1928 he bought larger premises just outside Haworth and this remained the family bakery until the millennium when the growing popularity of their biscuits relocated them to Steeton, West Yorkshire – a modern bakery meeting exacting international standards – but still making biscuits with tradition, flare and imagination to cater for changing tastes.
