When it comes to weirdness, England beats the U.S., hands down. After all, the Sceptr'd Isle has had a few more centuries to master the art of the bizarre. And no one's better to chronicle Britain's decidedly odd features than Matt Lake. Join him as he visits the town where it rained frogs, the Highgate Vampire, Fauxhenge, the Bleeding Tombstone of Hinckley, the Yorkshire Methusaleh, the Rude Man of Cerne Abbas and much more.
