for Holcombe Egg Rolling as your favourite British event.

Every Good Friday crowds gather in the morning at the foot of Holcombe Hill behind the town of Ramsbottom and the villages of Holcombe Brook and Holcombe. They are there for the morning church service, but more intriguingly many of them, and many more who skip the religious bit, will climb the steep hill for a tradition that dates from time immemorial: egg rolling .
