Eccles Cakes: The word “Eccles” means ‘church’; it is assumed the town takes it's name after the old church built in 1111 AD. Each year a service was held at the church to celebrate its construction, it was called Eccles Wakes. Following the fair food and drink was served, including (so the story goes) Eccles Cakes. These cakes were banned in 1650 AD due to the Puritan believe that they had pagan connections.
