Publisher's Summary

Even more crazy and barking mad things we Brits get up to in our spare time. Want to be world champion at gravy wrestling? Or perhaps you fancy swan upping?

This is Volume II of Barking Mad British Traditions and Sports. Volume I has been well received, so I thought I'd write a follow-up. I hope you will be glad I have. Inside, you will learn about 20 of the most crazy, silly, and of course barking mad things we British do to have a bit of fun and keep ourselves occupied. We are known for our eccentricity - here's some proof!

There is some bizarre stuff inside. For example, the strange world of swan upping and the spookiness of turning the Devil's stone or the mysterious Moonraking festival. Then some of the barking mad world championships - snail racing, egg throwing, and clog cobbing to name but three.

Curious? Then why not get your copy now to discover more about hare scrambling and bottle kicking, for example.

The British are still eccentric and barking mad. We love it, and here is volume II to prove it!

Here are just some of the barking mad British traditions, customs and sports you will hear about inside:

  • Dunmow Flitch Trials
  • World Clog Cobbing Championships
  • Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival
  • World Gravy Wresting Championships
  • Totness Orange Races
  • And another 15 more Barking Mad British Traditions, Customs and Sports
