I got hold of the elusive Moreton Milk today and found out a very small part of their backstory.
I spoke with Mark whose father started milk deliveries over 50 years ago. The name Moreton comes from where the family used to live in Upper Clapton - Moreton Close, near Springfield Park and the River Lee.
Although they've moved out to the Broxbourne / Hoddesdon are, It sounds like they retain a close affinity to north/east London.
The milkman who delivers to the Ladder is Ian. Some contacts below:
Mark - 079 5698 0667
Ian - 079 5111 4045
Thanks for this - I have never met them (they deliver early ) - I think they inherited the round from someone else some years ago. They are really excellent - always seem to get the dates right when we are going to be away.
They are brilliant. Cannot fault them. It is so nice to get our milk in bottles and they are very flexible. You can order other things too. 5 stars if I could rate them
