Wensleydale, cracking cheese lad

creation_700_12662 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!’article-2526583-003DBA2900000258-977_634x409 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.)DSC_0383smallOne 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.series-ll-land-rover-called-shaun-the-sheep

    • Coffeypot, the whole area is peaceful and tranquil, the only danger comes from suffering a twisted ankle miles from no where… Aye.

    • Curtis, whenever I head over to the Yorkshire dales on a walk-about, I inevitably call into the Wensleydale creamery where the cheese is produced http://www.wensleydale.co.uk/

      On my last visit I had just finished a long 20 mile walk around the dales. I was on my chin strap with fatigue as I sat down within the farm shop with a pot of tea and sandwiches; just as three coaches packed full of Japanese tourists pitched up. Wallace & Gromit may well be the ruin of all things peaceful in Yorkshire… Aye.

  2. Cheese and Wallace and Gromit – some of my favorite things. You should paste a pic of Shaun the Sheep to that photo.

  3. I love cheese…all of it; from the spicy to the gooey and the profane…Wallace & Gromit, great front men for a great cheese…it’s expensive here but worth it…if it can be found…k

    • Kristen, my will power crumbled earlier… I opened the barrel of Wensleydale, and the tin of Jacobs crackers… What a combination with a nice pot of tea. Aye.
