In the 18th century, Stilton was a stopover town for stagecoaches traveling between London and York.
While the horses were being changed, travelers were eating in one of the inns of the city. Blue Stilton's pioneer was Cooper Thornhill, resident of Stilton, who fell in love with this blue cheese by visiting a farm in 1730 in the city.
It was he who first offered the travelers a chewy, creamy, blue veined cheese that, therefore, took the name of the city.
The village of Stilton is located on a major route of the British Stagecoach circuit, and cheese awareness spread throughout Great Britain.
