About

There has always been a degree of uncertainty about the evolution of Stilton Cheese, but thanks to extensive research we now have a clearer knowledge of the origins and how Stilton Cheese evolved. Texts from the 19th and 20th Century suggest Stilton cheese has never been made in the village of Stilton, but was first sold here. One theory is that a lady called Frances Pawlett, a renowned cheesemaker from Wymondham, near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire supplied blue veined cheese to Cooper Thornhill, the landlord of the Bell Inn in the village of Stilton in the 1740s. There has also been evidence to suggest that a harder, creamy cheese was being made and sold in and around the village of Stilton during the 17th and 18th centuries. Either way, it is clear that the origins of Stilton can be traced back to the Melton Mowbray area.
