The sunlit area lower centre of the picture is a plateau at the top of the hill.

There is no clean water available in the area for competitors or spectators and there are NO public toilet facilities provided at the event or indeed locally.

The lack of level ground in the vicinity of the Cheese-Rolling Event at Cooper's Hill, is one of many reasons why the organisers have been unable to provide toilet facilities at the event.

There is no public water supply at on near to the event, it is imperative that you bring your own supplies to avoid dehydration whilst attending the event. You are advised that any open sources of water, should be considered as polluted and therefore avoided!

Additional consideration, by those intending to participate in the event, should be given to having a sufficient additional water supply with them for the immediate treatment and cleansing of minor wounds and grazes.
