Synopsis

An alternative journey around England, visiting the sights that are definitely not on the average tourist trail.



In this charming book, David Long introduces the reader to some of the oddest and most interesting sights in England, such as:



* Devon's Gnome Reserve

* Britain's smallest pub

* A church for dragon slayers

* A subterranean ballroom

* The Phone Box Museum, and much more



From weird buildings to eccentric museums and from mystical superstitions to remnants of magical rites, this is a guide to England like no other.

Well received by reviewers and readers alike, David Long has been a writer since leaving a first-class university with a second-class degree in the 1980s. He is fascinated by those strange, semi-hidden corners of England most of us cease to notice because we walk by them so often. Whilst a columnist for the Sunday People he created a popular weekly cartoon strip which appeared in the Times, and continues to write for a wide diversity of newspapers and magazines both in Britain and abroad. Many of his most popular and best-reviewed books reflect his longstanding interest in the less well-known aspects of Britain, its architecture and eccentric inhabitants - subjects, he says, which simply never run dry. He has written Bizarre England and Lost Britain for Michael O'Mara Books.
