Within the picturesque countryside of Mid Shropshire sits the small market town of Much Wenlock. With its narrow streets, half timbered stone houses, Guildhall and ruined Abbey, Much Wenlock displays much of its medieval heritage.
In the 20th Century Much Wenlock became famous as the birthplace of the modern International Olympic movement, the inspiration of the local surgeon, Dr. William Penny Brookes and later developed by Baron Pierre de Coubertin into the modern International Olympic movement we know today.
Wenlock has also been home to HEART of ENGLAND fine foods for over ten years and the area is now synonymous with the production of quality fine foods. Local producers using recipes, traditional and new, specialise in curing meats, maturing cheeses and preserving fruits from the immediate area.
As a tribute to this Olympic heritage we have launched Wenlock Hampers, packed with the finest local food; we hope they will give visitors near and far a little piece of Wenlock to take away with them.
Our collection contains food and drink produced within a marathon’s distance of Much Wenlock town centre. Each of the hampers contains information explaining where the products are from and who the producer is that made them. There are also recipe ideas from the HEART of ENGLAND fine foods chef.
The Hamper range is available to order from the LOCAL FOOD STORE at Shropshire Food Enterprise Centre and through selected retail outlets. Wenlock Hampers are also available to order online from our own online food store.
