Mollington Grange was once a monastic farm, serving the Abbey of St Werburgh (now Chester Cathedral), just 2 miles away. In 1649, when Cromwell returned from Ireland he shot the Royalist owner of the Grange, landed a cannon ball in the side of the wall, and set up camp with his artillery for the siege of Chester. One of the best known cheese making farms, their cheeses were stamped CCC4, as part of a Choice Cheshire Cheese scheme to achieve high quality standards.

Chris Wade is 4th generation cheese maker with a determination to keep alive our traditional recipes for Cheshire, Red Leicester, Double Gloucester and Sage Derby. I tasted his revival of Blue Cheshire last made 10 years ago.
His cheeses use raw milk from local farms on the Cheshire salt plain, and each cheese is cloth bound to let the delicate flavours breathe and develop naturally for up to 8 weeks, being turned every few days.

Available from Mollington Farm Shop, Parkgate Road, Mollington - The Cheese Shop in Northgate Street, Chester - Godfrey C Williams at Sandbach, Sexton at Lymm, The Cheese Hamlet at Didsbury, and the Housekeepers Store at Tatton Park, Knutsford. Also at Fortnum & Mason, London and it is exported monthly to the USA.
