home of the fig pie wakes

Wybunbury Fig Pie Wake is a very strange, very English, and (apparently) quite old. The custom of rolling specially-made fig pies down the village’s hill at the annual Wybunbury Wakes festival in Cheshire is strangely interesting

Once a year, in a quiet and picturesque village, tucked away in a corner of South Cheshire, over 1,000 people enjoy the June sunshine, while watching a very different kind of sport:  Fig Pie Rolling.

the leaning tower of wybunbury

Believe it or not, the village of Wybunbury and the Italian town of Pisa have something in common.

 Wybunbury’s 29.3 m tower is all that remains of a late fifteenth century church demolished in 1833. (Later churches, replacing the fifteenth century one, were also demolished in 1892 and 1977). The tower was stabilised using under excavation by James Trubshaw in 1832 and this is the earliest known application of the technique, which was also used more notably to stabilise the Leaning Tower of Pisa! So it could be claimed that if it wasn’t for Wybunbury one of the world’s most famous monuments may have inclined its way to a decline.
