In 1850 Edwin Dyer started a bakehouse behind his house on School Lane in Hockley Heath. This eventually became Wedges as we know today. Edwin’s surname also lends itself to Dyers lane where the bakery is located.
In the early 1900’s the bakery passed to Mr F Allcott who ran it during World War One and into the 1930’s.
In 1943 Jim Wedge arrived at the bakery. He had been baking since the age of 12. The bakery was named Wedges. In the early 1970’s Jim sold Wedges to Tom Griffiths. The bakery then continued with Tom and his family until 2013 when it was acquired by Heptinstall Holdings.
