After leaving the church we walked through Repton village to the ancient Cross. This was the centre of the medieval village, with its Wednesday market and two annual fairs. We admired the historic buildings scattered throughout the village; a 'Repton Trail' leaflet produced by Repton Village History Group provides interesting information on some of these buildings. You can find a copy on board the Silver Ann 2, along with some 'Repton Rambles' leaflets giving routes of some circular walks around the village.
Next we followed our noses to the 'Greedy Pig Butchers' where the delicious aroma of baking pies was wafting out of the doorway. Inside we found an array of tasty goodies: game pie; pheasant orange and port pie; pork pie topped with mango chutney; black pudding pate with beer all particularly caught my eye. There is a traditional meat counter, shelves of chutneys, sauces, baked goods and outside some fresh fruit and vegetables. A real gem of a find for those on a self-catering holiday. We snapped up one of the pies for our tea and can confirm it was as delicious as it smelt!
