The love of super, succulent sausages has led maths teacher Stephen Plume, creator of the sausagefans.com website, to start a new website www.sausageking.co.uk.
The love of super, succulent sausages has led maths teacher Stephen Plume, creator of the sausagefans.com website, to start a new website with a blog.
This will involve him taking on a lengthy journey around Britain - during his holidays from Stradbroke Business Enterprise College - to visit the producers of the finest sausages, raise the profile of quality butchers and highlight the plight of British pig farmers at the same time.
Plume, who comes from Bury St Edmunds and now lives near Diss, began his tour in Newmarket last month with the famous Musks sausage plant.
"The first leg of my tour will take me to Lincolnshire and Norfolk and over the next few school holidays I will visit sausages makers in the rest of England, Scotland and Wales," he said.
Plume is taking on the trip riding a Triumph motorbike, which has been loaned by Suffolk Triumph. He said: "Thanks to them it means I will be doing my tour of the British Isles on a British bike in search of the finest British sausages."
During the trip he will record his impressions of the various producers he visits on his blog at www.sausageking.co.uk
