Lancashire cheese has been made in Lancashire since the 13th century. However, it might be considerably different from the Lancashire cheese we see today. Farmers' wives made the cheese from the surplus milk. In 1890, a Lancashire County Council employee named Joseph Gornall advised on production methods and created a formal recipe for Lancashire cheese. This method is still used today.

Lancashire cheese comes in mostly three styles - Creamy Lancashire, Tasty Lancashire and Crumbly Lancashire. The Creamy Lancashire is a very popular cheese that is aged for 4 to 12 weeks. In fact, in some areas, it is called toastie. It also goes well with Welsh rarebit, sandwiches and pasta.
