    I bought some Wensleydale Blue when we visited last month, I like Shropshire blue too. It’s good to have a rival. Now I’ll have to visit again to restock to try this dumpling recipe….me belly’s rumbling. I”ll have to trade you with our local Lincolnshire plum bread, sausages and Acelet (haslet)
