Cheese Rolling: a Great BritishTradition?


We do have some strange relics of entertainment in this country, it's true... none of them seem as weird and wonderful as the Annual Cheese Rolling competition though! I love the caption from the Flickr photo shown above: "The winner of the women's race holds aloft a Double Gloucester Cheese after being the first to chase it down the steep gradient of Cooper's Hill in pouring rain during the annual Bank Holiday tradition of cheese-rolling in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, England."


Perhaps if you're here in May you'd like to take part? Th eofficial one was cancelled because it was too popular, but there's usually an unofficial one on May Bank Holiday... Apparently the slope has a 1:1 gradient in parts!
