Contrary to popular belief, Stilton cheese has never been made in the town of Stilton. Stilton is a town just outside of the city of London and was primarily used as a staging post for travellers; it was one of the owners of a hostel in a nearby town which first introduced a soft creamy blue veined cheese which then went on to take the name of the nearby town of Stilton. The entrepreneur had bought the cheese from a farmers wife in a nearby town of Melton Mowbray and this is where Stilton originated.
