circa 1851This historic Bakehouse was built by Richard Chapman during 1851. Chapman was a property owner, butcher and businessman of Morpeth whose residency extended from at least 1850 to his death in 1867. The building has technical value as a rare, authentic trade industrial building providing evidence of early bakehouse design and technology. It also provides intact evidence of an early colonial workplace and represents an aspect of trade and occupation in a regional area that has direct links with Sydney and with navigation. Bakery products made in this bakehouse would have been consumed locally as well as being shipped to other parts of NSW and beyond.
