About Melton Mowbray



Melton Mowbray 
is a town in the Melton borough ofLeicestershire, England. It is 14 12 miles (23 km) to the northeast ofLeicester, and 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Nottingham. The town lies along the course of both the River Eye and the River Wreake and currently has a population of 25,554.

Promoted as the "Rural Capital of Food", Melton Mowbray is perhaps best known for its culinary specialities, being the home of the eponymous pork pie and one of the five homes of Stilton cheese.

 

 

 

History


 


The name Melton comes from the early English word Medeltone – meaning 'Middletown surrounded by small hamlets' (and therefore has the same origin as places called Milton and Middleton). Mowbray is a Normanfamily name – the name of early Lords of the Manor – namely Robert de Mowbray.

 

 

 

 

Melton Mowbray's imposing St Mary's church

 



In and around Melton, there are 28 scheduled ancient monuments, around 705 buildings listed as having special architectural or historical interest, 16 sites of special scientific interest, and several deserted village sites.

There is industrial archaeology including the Grantham Canal and the remains of the Melton Mowbray Navigation. Windmill sites, ironstone working and smelting archaeological evidence suggest that Melton borough was densely populated in Bronze and Iron Ages. Many small village communities existed and strategic points at Burrough Hill andBelvoir were fortified. There is also evidence to suggest that the site of Melton Mowbray in the Wreake Valley was inhabited before Roman occupation (43 AD).

 

 


 

Economy


Prior to 1960, the Production Engineering Research Association of Great Britain (PERA) came to the town on Nottingham Road and employed around four hundred people in supporting research and development in industry. It is also home to theEast Midlands Manufacturing Advisory Service.

The former East Midlands Regional Assembly was based in a building also on Nottingham Road.

Petfoods came to the town in 1951 as Chappie Ltd, employing at its peak over two thousand people, it now employs around one thousand. It changed its name Petfoods in 1957, Pedigree Petfoods in 1972 and most recently Masterfoods in January 2002. At Melton, it makes four million items of petfood every day, which is less than it used to. Masterfoods now have their UK headquarters close to Melton at Waltham-on-the-Wolds.

The uPVC windows and door manufacturer Truframe Ltd. relocated from Market Harborough to the Saxby Road Industrial Estate in Melton in December 1999. It was employing about 170 people in August 2013.

 

 

Entertainment and Facilities


Melton Carnegie Museum is based in Melton Mowbray. The museum has recently been refurbished and visitors can expect a "hands on", audio visual family orientated experience showing the history and importance of the town. Included are sounds from the ages, a history of the hunt, a preserved phone box, a buried (underfoot and perspex) Saxon and shrapnel from WWII.

Melton Mowbray is renowned for its music-making. The Melton Band (a traditional British-style brass band) can trace its directors back to 1856 and was, until recently, called Melton Borough Band. The colourful Melton Mowbray Toy Soldiers Marching Band was formed in 1936; and Happy Jazz – a dixieland jazz band – had its headquarters in the town from 1996 until 2014. There is also the Melton Mowbray Tally Ho Band, formed in 1936; and Tornado Brass, a mixed brass and woodwind group, was founded in the 1980s.

Melton has several pubs, some of which, like the Generous Britain (affectionately known as the Jenny B) continue to encourage new live music.[16] The Noels Arms Freehouse is Melton Mowbray District CAMRA Pub of the Year 2014 and is the place to go for fine ales and cider. The Noels also houses Gasdog Brewery which is the first brewery in the town for over a hundred years. Also gaining great reputation for new and established bands and musicians in Melton Mowbray every Friday & Saturday night, Sunday afternoons sees the pub open to acoustic acts and the now very popular cheese board.[17] There are several other pubs in Melton surviving the latest recession, including one of the oldest establishments in the area, The Anne of Cleves. This ancient building on Burton Street close to St Mary's church has features dating from the early 14th century. Originally home to Chantry Monks the building was taken during the dissolution and given, by Henry VIII to Anne of Cleves as part of the divorce settlement.[18]

The town boasts an unusual cinema, The Regal, in King Street in the centre of the town. The building itself is a remarkably preserved purpose-built theatre complete with period interior design, sumptuous colours with winding staircases and fancy plasterwork.[19] It re-opened in 2013 after refurbishment.

Concerts have been played in the carousel bandstand in Melton Mowbray Park since August 1909. There is still a series of concerts on summer Sundays.

Melton has its own radio station 103 The Eye which broadcasts to Melton Borough and the Vale of Belvoir, including part of Rushcliffe Borough, on 103 FM as well as worldwide on the internet via its website www.103theeye.co.uk When the station launched in 2005 it was the first in the UK to go on the air under the new tier of community radio licensed by the broadcasting regulator OFCOM. The station has since won a number of awards for its work. It is named after the River Eye.

The historic Stapleford Miniature Railway built in 1958 is a private steam hauled passenger railway at Stapleford Park around 3 miles (5 km) to the east of Melton Mowbray. Famous for its fleet of steam locos and scenic location, it attracts thousands of visitors and tourists during occasional summer openings for charity. It is of the same 10 14 in (260 mm) gauge as the Town Estates small railway that runs in an oval around play close park in Melton, albeit a lot longer.

Also 12 mile (800 m) to the north east of Melton is the theme park "Twinlakes". A locally popular venue this park provides a whole host of family and children's attractions and rides.

Melton's Waterfield Leisure Pools offer a range of activities, including a well-equipped gym and fitness suite as well as swimming.[21] The library in Wilton Road is close to the town centre and adjacent is Melton Theatre, part of Brooksby Melton College, on the junction with Asfordby Road. The theatre first opened in 1976, has recently been refurbished and continues to provide a wide variety of entertainment. In the past few years, it has produced remarkable ballet, opera, and dramatic plays of many types, and provided a venue for many top class bands and acts, pantomime and art displays. It has ample parking, is fully licensed and is a most pleasant place to visit.

There is a fire station, a police station, and a hospital, with St Mary's maternity centre, The War Memorial Hospital off Ankle Hill, originally Wyndham Lodge donated to the town in 1920 by Colonel Richard Dalgleish, has, in 2010, been sold to help fund St Mary's hospital.

 

 

Education



The secondary schools in Melton are Long Field Academy and John Ferneley College, which take students aged 11 to 16, and the Melton Vale Post 16 Centre (MV16) for Sixth Formers. The town has several primary schools – Brownlow, Grove, St Francis RC, St Mary's C of E, Sherard and Swallowdale – while the Birchwood Special School caters for young people of primary and secondary school age. Melton's largest school used to be the King Edward VIIwhich at one time had around 2,000 pupils aged between 11 and 19. It was founded as a Grammar School in 1910, became comprehensive in the late 1960s and closed recently after reaching its centenary. Brooksby Melton College which provides vocational, further and higher education in a wide range of subjects has a campus on Asfordby Road in Melton plus a smaller annexe on King Street. These facilities complement those on the college's Brooksby campus 6 miles (10 km) out of the town.





Transport 




Melton railway station is on the line from Birmingham to Stansted Airport via LeicesterPeterborough and Cambridge. Trains run hourly in either direction. The service is supplemented with additional trains in the peak on route to/from Nottingham,Norwich and Sleaford. The station is managed by East Midlands Trains although most services are operated byCrossCountry. CrossCountry intend to enhance their service gradually to half-hourly on this route. Since early 2009 East Midlands Trains have offered a single daily journey from Melton Mowbray to London St Pancras and return.

In 2010, the company introduced a single daily journey to Derby and return.

The majority of bus services in Melton Mowbray are provided by Centrebus. Services link Melton Mowbray with Leicester,NottinghamOakham and other regional centres, as well as many of the surrounding villages.
