Size isn’t everything, or so the saying goes. Take the Lancashire town of Whalley for instance. Whalley’s population of around two and a half thousand is relatively tiny compared to many other towns in the county, but that does not make Whalley a poor relation by any means. The good people of Whalley are rightly proud of their town. Whalley folk also enjoy a nice hog roast at every available opportunity. So what is it about hog roast Whalley people like so much? Just because Whalley is a small town, there is definitely enough going on in and around the town that can help its people work up a fantastic appetite that only a hog roast could properly satisfy. For such a relatively small town, there is a lot of sport to be enjoyed with tennis courts for budding Andy Murrays, bowling facilities for those Whalley folk who like their sport at a gentle pace, a cricket ground for the England internationals of the future and of course a football ground for those keen to step into David Beckham’s boots. With all these facilities in Whalley, it’s no wonder that hog roast is such a popular catering option.
It’s not all sport and action in Whalley. Just take a look at Whalley Viaduct (or Whalley Arches as it often referred to). Over three million bricks went into the viaduct’s construction, making it the biggest viaduct of its kind in Lancashire. Such a major construction project must have been hungry work back in its day, and it is certain that a hog roast for the Whalley Viaduct construction workers would have been most welcome. Sadly, it is unlikely they were able to enjoy such a hog roast treat…unlike twenty first century Whalley folk. And hog roast really is a treat!
