I have just heard the craziest news!
The annual cheese rolling event that has taken place on Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire for almost 200 years, has been "officially" cancelled!
I am so thankful that while we lived in Cheltenham, we took the opportunity to go and see it! I remember the traffic being so bad, that at one point we almost turned back.
Here's a few of the pictures I took.

See the small white dot? That's the prize!
This gives you a good idea of how steep the hill is!
These are the crazy people heading to the top of the hill. Can you find the naked bum?
Here's a Youtube clip that gives a good idea of what it must be like to actually do the run down the hill.
I can certainly see why people would think it dangerous and unnecessary.
But hey, if you're stupid enough to essentially throw your body down a steep slope in hopes of winning a 7 pound roll of cheese, who are we to judge?
