The area is also the home of stilton cheese, so things weren't entirely bad for a visiting vegetarian. We popped into Ye Old Pork Pie Shoppe, where Tom picked out an immense pie (and I bought a cheese and onion pasty) and we headed to the park in the sunshine for a picnic.
The only disappointment in Melton was the lack of records in the local charity shops. With it being Record Store Day on Saturday I was hoping to pick up a few gems, but no such luck! I later met up with some friends in the Arboretum who had quite an impressive haul bought from Rob's Records in Nottingham though, a place I still need to visit.
