Further to consultations undertaken in August 2016 and March 2017, Warwickshire County Council now give advance notice of highway improvement works along Priory Road as the first stage in a series of improvements proposed for Warwick town centre.

20mph speed limit has recently been introduced in the town centre. The next stage of the project affects Priory Road from Cape Road junction to St Johns, and is planned to start on Monday 8th January. Work is expected to be complete by the end of February 2018.

The works include the widening of footways to accommodate a new shared use footway / cycleway, road humps, raised junctions and speed cushions to help reduce vehicle speeds to the 20mph speed limit and assist pedestrians crossing.

To allow the works to be carried out safely and efficiently, Priory Road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the works. Traffic will be diverted via The Butts / Smith Street, with the The Butts restricted to one-way southbound as part of the diversion plans to ease traffic flows during the construction works.

These road closures may add extra time onto your journey into & out of Warwick Town.

The below stalls will be trading:
  • The Meat Man
  • Diamond Knitwear

Whether you’re at a fancy party or a casual get-together, these pastry wrapped sausages never seem out of place. 


Ingredients

  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 14 ounces Eckrich® Li’l Smokies Cocktail Smoked Sausage

Pigs in Blankets Recipe Directions

  1. Set the pastry sheets out to thaw.  Heat the oven to 400°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Beat the egg in a small bowl with a fork

  2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the work surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 10x14-inch rectangle.  Trim a bit off the edges to make sure they're straight.  Cut the rectangle into 7(2x10-inch) strips.  Stack the strips on top of each other, making sure to match up the edges.

  3. With the long side facing you, cut off and discard about 1-inch from the left and right ends of the stack on the diagonal (make sure both cuts are slanted in the same direction).  Then, cut the stack crosswise, using the same diagonal cuts, into 3(about 3-inch long) sections (yielding 21 pieces of pastry).  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet, making 42 pieces in all.

  4. Place 1piece of pastry on the work surface, with a pointed end facing you.  Place 1 sausage crosswise across the center of the pastry.  Brush the pointed end farthest from you with the egg.  Starting at the end closest to you, roll the pastry around the sausage and press to seal.  Repeat with the remaining sausages and pastry.  Place the wrapped sausages onto the baking sheets.  Brush with the remaining egg.

  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Serve with your favorite hot dog condiments.

  6. For additional flavor and texture,  after brushing the unbaked pastries with the egg, sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds and/orsea salt orfinely shredded Cheddar cheese, then bake as shown.  Or try brushing on some sweet pickle relish, it bakes up like little pickle chips on the outside!

  7. Ingredient Note:  The number of cocktail smoked sausages in a 14 ounce package may vary, so don't worry if the pieces of pastry and the number of sausages don't match exactly.
