Where to Photograph Cheese Rolling

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Cheese Rolling within the UK. This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information. I have seen mentioned that there are many local cheese rolling or cheese Olympic type events taking place in other areas around England, but the list below is all that we have been able to find so far, so if you know of an event that you feel should be listed here let us know and we will add it.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.
