About Colwick Nottingham

Colwick was originally comprised of two small settlements - Over Colwick and East Colwick.

Colwick has its own cheese! a type of cottage cheese that was created by John Clarkeston, who died in 1645 and is buried in Colwick Old Church.

The cheese was a very popular and familiar that would be made in schools and at home, very often in the shape of a bowl which then fruit, cream or jam could be placed in, the vice president of Nottingham civic society Hilary Silvester shared her knowledge of Colwick cheese.

“I remember from my childhood my mother making Colwick cheese by pouring sour milk through muslin cloth to catch the curds, then tying the top of the cloth together and hanging it out on the clothes line to drain., then squeezing and moulding it into a round shape similar to Camembert. It tasted very like today’s cottage cheese....I recall eating it spread on bread with pepper and salt.”

The Harrison family specialised in the Colwick cheese and sold them on Wednesdays in the Market square and later moved to Central market in 1928 where they remained until it closed. Because of it popularity the black boy hotel and Kings Grocery Shop in Friar’s lane also stocked it. Richmond’s diary at the top of Ransom Road near the junction with Woodborough Road, was the noted premises for its commercial production. It made eight tonnes of the cheese a day.

Commercial production stopped in 1993 when the Richmond Dairy closed down.

Recipe from Nottinghamshire regional recipes website

“Use full-cream-milk – 2 gallons (9 litres) will make two small cheese. Heat the milk to 90 mix in rennet in the proportion of 1 drachm to 1 1.2 gallons of milk. Top stir till curd forms, then leave in a covered bucket for 1 1.2 hours, Mark the top of the each with the Colwick hoop, slice off the two ‘tops/ and put them on one side. Line the two hoops with your muslin, then ladle the curd into the hoops. Leave to drain a little, then slide on the two top[s and fold the muslin over the top of the hoop. Leave to drain again, then pull the cloths up and inwards, pulling the curd away from the edge of the hoop. Do this several times whilst draining is going on. This will then produce the characteristic curling over the edge of the Colwick cheese. After 24 hours of draining the cheese should be firm enough to handle- do not turn the cheese during draining. When really firm the hoop can be removed and the cloth pulled away; it is then ready to eat.”
