The Story Behind ‘The Greatest Pie That Ever Lived’

Pie FC -TT - Nov 2017

When I was little, I lived in a three-hundred-year-old thatched cottage in Devon. I went to a primary school called Brampford Speke, other villages around had wonderful names too, such as Cheriton Fitzpaine, Nomansland and Black Dog.

On a distant hill, called Raddon Top, stood three solitary trees which at Christmastime looked like the Three Wise Men – especially at twilight when the stars appeared.

The village in the story is based on a real village in Devon which had a pub called the Three Tuns Inn.  People from many places around the world live in harmony in this peaceful English village.
