Phil's enjoying a leisurely breakfast but Jill seems eager to get rid of him. Lynda's coming round later for a trial run at producing a loaf in an hour for the Gormley project.

The first attempt is a disaster. It's taken nearly twenty minutes just to grind the flour. They're just going to have to hand-grind a few grains and add them to ready-ground local flour.

The second attempt is a success. Phil's impressed. Now all they have to do is reproduce the results on the plinth. Jill hopes they're not going to suggest she practise on the roof of the village hall. Lynda thinks Phil has a point. They need to experiment outside, so the next attempt will have to be on a camping stove in the garden!

Brian tries to warn Matt not to expect too much support from the Borchester Land board but Matt's not about to make things easier for them by falling on his sword. Annabelle tells Matt that if he doesn't resign they'll simply have to move to a vote of no confidence; BL's been tainted with Matt as Chair. Matt agrees to give up the chairmanship but he's staying on the board - they can't get rid of him that easily.
