Audlem - Hoc's Fat Pigeon

I thought I'd start this post with a picture of the church of St James the Great in Audlem.  The earliest part dates back to the 13th century.  In front of the church is the Buttermarket.   Audlem was granted its Market Charter in 1296.

It's nice to see the village is still thriving.  Whilst other villages are losing their shops, in Audlem new shops keep opening!  Audlem is also where one of my favourites walks is.

A short distance from the church up Cheshire Street is Hoc's Fat Pigeon.  It's a friendly shop which their Facebook page tells me "if its fair-traded, organic, natural, therapeutic, wholefoods and healthy you'll find it at the Fat Pigeon"!
Inside you'll find everything from eco English charcoal,
and cereals to cous cous. 

Where possible there's an emphasis on local food so there's Staffordshire Oatcakes, Cheshire honey and free range eggs from Ben's Eggs at Hookgate.  

They also sell organic and local fruit and vegetables:
