Haslingden is well known for its food offer and not least the excellent pies available from the likes of Cissy Greens and Manning’s.
For the alternative Pie Shop, community artist, Emma Long asked local people what would be in their perfect pie 🥧.
Market shoppers, visitors to the Dearden Tea Rooms and Haslingden Crafternoon group, amongst others, contributed their ideas which they made out of clay.
The shop window display offers some curious recipes: fillings include dinosaur, pot noodle, haggis and strawberry.
The alternative pie shop at 13 Deardengate (former hospice shop) has a limited lease and the pies will be on display to 28 November. The pie shop is part of the Haslingden Food Heroes Project culminating on 28 November with a grub bazaar at the market, a Christmas fair at the Dearden Tea Rooms and live music.
The Alternative Pie Shop and Haslingden Food Heroes is supported by Rossendale Borough Council’s Wellcome Back Fund.
