Stick of Blackpool Rock

Description

A great British seaside treat complete with traditional block lettering through the tube so at one end the words are readable and at the other they are backwards!

There is no documented history of lettered rock, it is folklore passed on from father to son. It is known, that in the early 1800’s, sugar boilers were putting patters and letters through sticks of rock and in the late 1800’s it was simply a question of adapting the industry to the demands of the market at the seaside.

Blackpool Rock was first made in Dewsbury in Yorkshire. Ben Bullock, who was a sugar boiler with his own factory in Dewsbury, returned from a holiday in Blackpool in 1887 and made the first batch of Blackpool Rock. When the idea occurred to him or was suggested to him that he should put ‘Blackpool Rock’ through the centre of the rock he no doubt thought it was worth a try.

Made from felt and stuffed with polyfil. Completely hand sewn and stuffed.

Please note that as each stick of rock is hand cut and sewn, the lettering and stripes may very slightly in each piece.

1.5 inches or 3 cms in diameter
7 inches or 18 cms long

Please note that as each piece is cut, embroidered and sewn by hand sticks or rock can be made in any colourway you want and with any wording, image or logo...please contact me with your requirements ;)
