Mr Hardy describes the process for making Stilton cheese. The original recording appears to have been paused on two occasions. Stilton refers to a type of blue cheese manufactured in the counties of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire. Leicester Red (more commonly Red Leicester) is a type of firm, orange-coloured, mild cheese originally made in Leicestershire. Melton refers to Melton Mowbray, a town to the east of Seagrave.
