"Merrie England": Tim Walker Shoots English Folk Culture for Vogue UK July 2011. "The Hunting of the Earl of Rone" folk tradition. Each Spring Bank Holiday the Devon village of Combe Martin is consumed with the pursuit of a masked man wearing a necklace of sea biscuits. According to the legend, the prisoner is the second Earl of Tyrone, an Irish renegade who was shipwrecked in 1607 before being captured by grenadiers. In today's re-enactment he is shot at and drowned for our entertainment.

The Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper's Hill, near Gloucester in the Cotswolds region of England. It is traditionally by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now people from all over the world take part. From the top of the hill a round of Double Gloucester cheese is rolled, and competitors race down the hill after it. The first person over the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese
