Pie Club History
Pork pie lovers had a treat on Saturday as the annual pork pie maker
competition got under way.
Hundreds of people turned up to The Old Bridge Inn in Ripponden to
sample the delights of some of the countrys best pork pies.
This year there were 53 entrants from butchers and bakers from as far
afield as Glasgow, Keswick, Southampton, and of course, from all over
Pie and peas were served throughout the day. There was also a
performance from Elland Silver Youth Band.
But of course the main attraction of the day was the hundreds of pork
pies freshly baked from some of the countrys best pork pie makers.
