What Is Cheese Rolling at Cooper’s Hill?

The Cheese Rolling at Cooper's Hill England is an annual event. It is prepared and celebrated traditionally by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth. Recently, however, people from all parts of the globe are taking interest on the occasion and are also participating in the event.
This tradition is already 200 years old, at least. It has not changed at all since it began. During the festival, all participants must roll a round of Double Gloucester cheese from the top of the hill, and then chase it downhill. The first person at the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese.
The cheese that is used in the event is the Double Gloucester, a hard cheese manufactured in cylindrical blocks. This is now supplied by the local cheesemaker Diana Smart since 1988. When cheese use was forbidden during the Second World War, a wooden "cheese" was used.
