Cheese Rolling

1. Cheese Rolling
If you find yourself in Gloucester at springtime, don’t be too surprised if you see a field of adults in hot pursuit of a large round of cheese. Curious as it may be, the annual Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake is exactly what you’d expect from its name. A 3-4kg round of Double Gloucester cheese is released at the top of Cooper’s Hill. Competitors then chase after the rolling dairy, with the first person across the finish line declared the winner. First prize? The round of cheese, of course!
