The market town of Uppingham in Rutland and its community partnership ‘Uppingham First’ are again hosting the start of the Stilton Cheese Classic Vehicle Run. This year’s event is on Sunday April 22nd with pre booked registration for drivers required on the Stilton Cheese Run website at http://stiltoncheeserun.webs.com/run-details    

   

Originally the run retraced the route, which was mainly along the quiet country lanes, taken to deliver cheeses from Quenby Hall at Hungarton in Leicestershire (where it was produced) to the Bell Inn at Stilton in Cambridgeshire, from where it gets its name. The original route of 39 miles, 300 years ago, was by horse drawn carriage stopping off to make deliveries of cheeses at the various villages and towns along the route including Bulwick (where they changed horses at New Lodge Farm) before arriving at Stilton. This was one of the longest commercial carriage rides until the new fangled internal combustion engined vans and lorries took over as the main mode of commercial road transport. Visitors can view the participating heritage vehicles between 9am and 12noon in Uppingham town centre.
