This is what you get when a group of British people wearing clogs get together. The world championships of Clog Cobbing is held every Easter at the Roebuck Inn, Whitewell Bottom, Rossendale, Lancashire. To cob is colloquial UK English for throwing, or to throw a clog the furthest down a path at the side of the pub. The competition began in the early 1960s after locals came up with the novel way of raising money for charity. The aim of the competition is to see who can throw a clog the greatest distance. The art of clog cobbing involves swinging the clog between the legs a few times to build up momentum and then hurling it backwards over the head.
