Melton Mowbray is a small town with a big history, and for the first time the full story is presented here, from the original settlers in prehistoric times right up to the present day. The town was visited by Richard 1st and King John, gave the world Melton pork pies and Stilton Cheese and the expression 'paint the town red'. In Victorian times it was a social centre for the aristocracy, visited by Royalty and the nobility, but that is only half the story; here also is the development of transport links, industry, the workhouse and the road system, details of the astonishing number of pubs in the town in the nineteenth century and how modern Melton reflects the past. The book is profusely illustrated with clear maps, old postcards and modern photgraphs.
