From THIS IS GLOUCESTERSHIRE:
Pie makers entering a competition at Gloucester Cathedral could find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
The ancient venue has asked local cooks to submit a recipe for a pie – with the best one being put into production for sale in the Cathedral’s cafe.
However, according to research, making a Pilgrim’s Pie in Gloucestershire could break a law dating back to the Doomsday Book.
The book records pagans making Pilgrim’s Pies to sell to monks in the Gloucester area, an idea which enraged local ruler Egbert of Wessex so much that he outlawed the practice.
He also banned the sale of shepherds’ pies in the area at the same time.
COMMENT: You may think this is a bit silly. But just remember the fuss Dicky Dorkins made when the ladies of Saint Drucie The Incontinent's Mothers Union started selling Atheist Strudel at their weekly bring and buy.
