Cheese making in Lancashire can be traced back as far as the 12th Century when in 1199 King John granted Preston a Royal Charter to host an annual cheese fair. Through the centuries that followed cheese production in Lancashire continued to grow, early cheeses were flat in shape, about three to four inches high and were sold after being matured for five to six months.

1892 saw a major turning point in the history of Lancashire cheese. Joseph Gornall of Cabus near Garstang, was a County Council employee and was well aware of the problems cheese makers were having and invented the “Gornall’s Patent Cheese-maker” which helped to standardise production. This recipe and method is still adhered to today.

JJ Sandham’s much celebrated ‘Lancashire bomb’ has a moist crumbly curd that is soft in the mouth. Flavours are lactic, creamy and mild with a slight salt finish.

Only available during early summer (Christmas Season).
