Funnily enough it was the annual cheese rolling competition today. It's where people chuck a wheel of cheese down a really steep hill and hurtle after it risking broken arms, legs and necks (there's always an ambulance waiting at the bottom for such incidents!). Whoever catches it, wins the cheese! It's been a tradition for hundreds of years and started off as a local event. Now, it attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. I watched it myself three years ago with some friends and the hill was so steep I could barely stand up even as a spectator!

Didn't it used to be a very large wheel of cheese?
