THE INN THAT FIRST 'BOOMED' STILTON CHEESE AND THE ROAD THROUGH STAMFORD

THE INN THAT FIRST 'BOOMED' STILTON CHEESE AND THE ROAD THROUGH STAMFORD

North of Huntingdon is the village of Stilton, which has gained much honour from one of the noblest of cheeses. The cheese was actually made at Wymondham, but first sold and popularised by the host of the Bell Inn, Stilton. The "Bell" still keeps its old carriage entrance, and its sign hangs far out over the road on a wrought iron support. A few miles past the "Bell" and we cross the Huntingdon border at that part of Northampton called the "Soke of Peterborough." Just across the next border, in Lincolnshire, is Stamford (bottom).
