Wensleydale or Yarg?

Cheese map of UK here

No doubt KBGS schoolboys were only fed Wensleydale.

I do remember my dad would eat it with his Christmas cake.

Re: Wensleydale or Yarg?

I was just reviewing those posts to which no one has replied, and I have to say that I still enjoy decent Wensleydale more than any other cheese, though a little Blue tsilton also gors down well.
But Chris mentions Yarg, which I also have enjoyed. For those of you who haven't come across it,it's principally found in the SW Counties (its made in Cornwall), and is a mild creamy textured cheese, wrapped in nettle leaves, which turn mouldy. It gets its name from the guy who first made it Mr Allan Gray, who simply reversed his name.
Anyone know if its available in the north?

In reply to my own post above (Apologies for the mistyping !), I have just been to Tesco in Heswall, and they have never heard of it !
