Egg rolling is often blighted by gale-force winds and large puddles at the bottom of the hill.

But with Easter being in late April there’s more of a risk of the eggs melting during Monday (22 April).

With egg rolls on the hour from 11am to 4pm it’s expected to be a bumper turnout for the Preston tradition.
