When the town council rejected Robert Fidler's plans to build a home on his farm in Surrey, England, he went ahead anyway, building a stone castle complete with turrets (built around two grain silos), ramparts and a cannon. He hid it behind a gigantic wall made of hay bales. After four years, he removed the bales, hoping the structure would be deemed legal since it'd been around so long. Local officials say it should be bulldozed.
