The history of the plate is from the web site and some is given below.


Fund Raising – The 1987 Ox Roast

Whilst discussions over this site were in their infancy, the Residents’ Association decided that an appropriate fund-raising activity would be a re-enactment of the 1887 Ox Roast that had been held for the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. An organising committee was formed in December 1985 and began raising funds to support the event.

Fund-raising activities included the sale of Xmas cards and calendars by a local artist depicting scenes in the village; family fun day and fun run; carol signing and a cheese and wine party. Sponsorship was obtained from local firms, enabling the production of a Souvenir Programme; reproductions of the plates produced to celebrate the first Ox Roast (and on that occasion handed out to local residents); mugs and coasters; sweatshirts and tee shirts. All these are now much sought after by local collectors.

Collection preferred, from Nantwich or Macclesfield Cheshire.  Collection can be arranged at a mutually convenient time but due to work etc we are not always available but we'll do our best to arrange a quick collection.  We can post if required, P&P to be agreed.

CASH ONLY, on collection.

No returns accepted.
