I had a few old tins up on ebay a couple of years ago, including a little Peek Frean sample tin, and it was bought by the curator of the Pumphouse Museum, which holds lots of archive stuff and artefacts from the Peak Freans factory.
The Web site is http://www.thepumphouse.org.uk/enter.shtml
and you can click on the 'Peek Frean' link on the left hand side to get a bit more history and some reminiscences - the area was known as Biscuit Town when the factory was at its peak (peek?).
Looks like an interesting spot for a visit, with a lot more local history, natural history and archeology stuff to look at.
