Roll Dat Cheese

Of all Britain's weird and wonderful customs and traditions, the annual cheese rolling races at Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire must be among the strangest - and certainly the most spectacular.

It takes place every year on Cooper's Hill near Brockworth in the last weekend of May, and it sees scores of men and women hurtle 200 yards down a near vertical slope in pursuit of a seven-pound Double Gloucester cheese.

Thousands more gather to watch the remarkable spectacle which has been happening almost every year for at least 200 years, and it is believed, possibly many centuries more.
