Cheese Rolling in the Cotswolds: a really strange event to watch!



Cheese Rolling is a legendary event that takes place in May each year at Cooper's Hill, near Gloucester, in the Cotswolds, England's South West. Utter mayhem ensues as competitors throw themselves downhill, chasing a round cheese. The first person over the finishing line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese - Double Gloucester, naturally. Cheese Rolling has been going for hundreds of years, but its origins are mysterious.
