Description
In 1831 Edward Adcock began wholesaling his 'Melton Mowbray pork pie' in London, making use of the daily Leeds to London stagecoach to convey his pies to the city centre. In 1840 Enoch Evans set up a rival business and the fame of the pork pie began to spread. In the late 1840s, John Dickinson started making pies close to Melton Mowbray station, later leasing a shop where the Melton Mowbray pork pie is still made today. This is a record of the people and places associated with the origins, development and production of this famous foodstuff.
