A famous Lancashire baker is celebrating 170 years of pie making and is giving villagers the chance to win a batch of tasty treats.

Holland's Pies set up shop in Hyndburn in 1851 and in 1929 made Baxenden its base.

Now, as the baker gets ready to celebrate 170 years of feeding the nation, bosses are giving everyone in the village of Baxenden (around 4,042 people), the opportunity to tuck into a dozen of its golden pies, complete with a portion of peas courtesy of Batchelors.

One hundred and seventy lucky winners will be able to get their hands on a selection of treats - one for every year Holland’s ovens have been baking.

And to add to its celebrations, Holland’s is asking everyone to share pictures of their favourite pies – and their favourite side combinations – with the team on social media, with the best images making the Holland’s Hall of Fame.

Brand manager at Holland’s Pies, Leanne Holcroft, said: “We’re excited to be celebrating such a landmark anniversary, with 170 years of history behind us, Holland’s Pies has become the oldest meat pie manufacturer in the UK.

“To mark this joyous occasion, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be celebrating with the villagers of Baxenden, partnering with Batchelors Peas to give them a chance to win a very special delivery of our tasty Holland’s Pies and peas.

“Having worked in the heart of the community, we’ve grown our northern base to serve homes and families across the UK, so fans outside Baxenden should keep an eye out on our social feeds to see what we have planned over the next few months.”
