It’s just an ordinary house in the UK - with a World War I trench in the back garden (complete with latrine).

Military historian Andy Robertshaw built the trench to experience what Great War soldiers went through, though obviously without what might be considered the crucial element of being shot at and bombed.

Creating re-enactments and having ‘sleepovers’ in the 60ft trench is Robertshaw’s slightly odd hobby, but then weird hobbies are what some men do best. Here are a few choice examples of both weird hobbies and hobbies that are made to seem weird by the men who practice them.
