Colston Bassett



Stilton was first recognized as a type of cheese at the beginning of the eighteenth century. It was given its name by the village of Stilton, just south of Peterborough on the GreatNorth Road, where it was first made and traded. Having originally being made in the town of Stilton, protection by a certification trademark (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin) – means that today the world famous cheese can only be made in the three adjacent counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
