John Timpson takes another quizzical look beyond the obvious and uncovers more examples all around us of the unusual, the unlikely and the undeniably odd. There is a church with a bedbug for a weathervane and a house with a full-size shark on the roof, Hadrian’s service station and King Alfred’s stone bugle, the oldest functioning pillar-box and the newest all-steel maypole – all find a place in this entertaining new collection of England’s more endearing curiosities. The items are illustrated by over 250 specially commissioned colour photographs and line drawings; maps at the end of the book show their locations.
