Is this the shop, Ann, a local journalist's tweet in May :

I'm on the fence as to whether this is a good name for a sandwich shop or not... #wigan

Baps has always been an abbreviation for barm cakes as far as I can recall, or were they like a small soft dinner role.

It depends where you are in the country britboy. Here is Suffolk, they have no idea what a barm cake is, here it's a bap.

My father was from Wales and he used to call them a batch, which if I remember rightly was also a huge barm cake with lines from the centre for dividing it like you would a cake.
