The famous Denby Dale Pies are a 220 year old village tradition; usually baked to celebrate national special occasions and events. These are not your normal run-of-the-mill pies – these are monster meat, and sometimes potato, pies that have been registered in the Guinness Book of Records in past years! There have been 10 Denby Dale pies so far.You can see the 1964 Pie Dish (to celebrate 3 royal births) now full of flowers outside the Pie Hall. The 1988 Pie Dish (baked to mark for the bi-centenary of the 1st Denby Dale Pie) is also still in use at Denby Dale First School as a nature garden The most recent pie, baked to celebrate the Millennium was over 12 tonnes in weight! You can buy normal size Denby Dale pies from the local shops and very nice they are too!!
One of the things that gives Denby Dale its unique character is the range of specialist shops in the village.
We leave lots of information in the cottage so you can make the most of your stay.
