Anyone enjoying a Cotswold tour today and who happens to be in my home town of Tetbury, will happen upon a somewhat peculiar annual event that takes place each spring bank holiday Monday! It involves teams of runners with heavy wool sacks on their backs running down the very steep and precarious “Gumstool Hill” between two pubs – The Crown and the Royal Oak. Yes you guessed the event does involve beer !
The town gets very festive – there is a street fair and funfair for the kids, a French market etc ! Lets hope the weather holds. These photos are from a previous year as I am working and may not be able to add any today.
