The Historic Arnott Bakehouse

Overview

In the restored c. 1850 Historic Arnott Bakehouse is Morpeth Sourdough, offering fresh authentic sourdough. This site in Morpeth is of historical significance to the colony of New South Wales, as the first bakehouse in this newly established river port. Built in the 1830’s, the shopfront and residence were one of the first allotments and buildings in the Morpeth township. About 20 years later the historic bakehouse was built, once the home and workplace of the Arnotts. The adjoining ‘roomy yard’ on the property housed the large stables.

This c.1850 bakehouse, a rare and authentic industrial building, now fully restored, is said to be the oldest original Scotch oven in the Country.
