It’s already famous the world over and the favourite of dearly-loved stop motion TV duo ‘Wallace and Gromit.’ But now Wensleydale cheese can boast a fresh accolade after it was awarded official protection by the European Union. The maker of the crumbly delicacy, the Yorkshire Dales-based Wensleydale Creamery, has finally won its long campaign for Protected Geographical Indication status for its product. ‘Cracking lad!’ The newly conferred status means no other cheese-maker outside the designated area can produce a cheese and call it Yorkshire Wensleydale. Good news for Wallace and Gromit! Wensleydale cheese awarded protected status by European Union, preventing any other region from making it Wensleydale, North Yorkshire (Click pic to enlarge below.)One of the few things the ‘bloody’ useless European Union has accomplished for the good of Yorkshire, and Great Britain…. And a cracking bit of cheese to boot! Yours Aye Lad.
