Stilton is still made in much the same way as it was when Daniel Dafoe, writing in his "Tour through England and Wales" in 1727, remarked that he "...passed through Stilton, a town famous for cheese". And yet, Stilton was never made in the town of Stilton!
Stilton is situated about 80 miles North of London on the old Great North Road. In the 18th century, the town was astaging post for coaches travelling to and from London and York. The horses would be changed and travellers served light refreshment at one of the hostelries in the town. Cooper Thornhill, an East Midlands entrepreneur, was landlord at the famous Bell Inn and it was he who introduced these travellers to a soft, creamy, blue veined cheese which subsequently took its name from the town. Thornhill had bought the cheese from a farmers wife by the name of Frances Pawlett who lived near Melton Mowbray.
The rest as they say is history!
