Although not “in London”, but because I thought it might appeal to some of you, I added an event in Gloucestershire that occurred on Monday to my events guide – the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling.
I didn’t go myself (I work Bank Holidays), but a friend did, although he arrived too late to get a decent view.
However, a press photographer was there – and the Boston Globe, a US newspaper with a penchant for publishing photos of the UK has put a load of them on its website.
Off on a tangent, it annoys me that I am often blocked from visiting old or confined places because of “health and safety”, and yet somehow, an an event like this can carry on, even though people are sometimes seriously injured during it (an ambulance was needed this year).
Long may people tumble down hills freely risking their limbs – and maybe one day I will be allowed into dank dark places having overcome the H&S phobia that exists in many venues .
