So you thought running down a 1 in 2 hill to catch a cheese was odd?
Well in Tetbury in Gloucestershire they run up and down a steep hill carrying a ruddy great sack of wool!!
at Witcham in Cambridgeshire they have a world peashooting championship. I have no footage but last year some chap had a laser guided pea shooter. You think I'm joking? there was footage on BBC's Countryfile Programme. I think I'm on holiday the weekend of the next championship or I might have gone and taken some photos!! What do you mean ANOTHER holiday?
There are loads of these strange events throughout the UK. It's a wacky old world.
But can anyone explain to me the joys of Morris Dancing?
There are various styles of Morris Dancing the one I most think of is the Cottswold style shown in the video.
