Here's to you DtG, it's years since I had a decent bit of Lancashire cheese. When my Mum was still able to travel and visited her sisters in Preston, she'd buy a large slab from Preston market and 'twould be blasphemy to compare it to the stuff you get in supermarkets. The best cheese now seems to come from small producers as the EEC and health & safety have legislated everything into an homogenous, bland contradiction in terms.
Wallace & Grommit should in fact be fans of Lancashire as their creator (Andy Park) was born and raised in Penwortham, just outside Preston,(next door to my Aunt)
As I say, it's been years since I had a decent bit of Lancashire cheese,(hint hint, PM for my address)
