A Food and History Tour of Nantwich
I am now offering a guided walking tour of Nantwich, for people interested in food and history.
The tour will cover how Nantwich has developed over the years, and its links with food and farming.
On the tour you will:
will also visit some of Nantwich’s excellent food shops and market,
where you can try local items like Cheshire cheeses (including Yabber Dabber Blue), local ice-cream and a Dabber’s pie.
- see a salt ship
- learn how a home brewer destroyed most of the town in 1583
- see a carving of a thieving landlady
- visit a grocer’s shop of yesteryear
- find out how a chicken's rear end is connected with a Nantwich vicar!
generally will take place on the last Saturday of the month, but can
take place at other times by arrangement. Your tour guide will be local historian Bill Pearson, who was a lecturer at Reaseheath College and now writes the popular Good Food Shops Blog.
