Barry Beck writes: As young lad I can remember going to the bakery for loaves of bread, there were a number of steps up into the shop.
I believe it was run by a family by the name of Buxton , possibly related to the bakers in Chaddesden of the same name.
This would be around 1950.
They had a son who was keen on cars, he was caught by the police using Locko Road as a race track.
He started a Masserati dealership in Derby but eventually went bust.
