July 15, 2016•51 min
Learn about the important role lighthouses played in the 19th century, and which are the most interesting to visit in the US and France. Then hear a tour guide from Wales explain the pride that comes from belonging to this distinctive corner of Great Britain, with its own language and traditions. And listen in as Rick visits England's Stanway House estate, a somewhat eccentric version of Downton Abbey that opens for visitors in the summer.
