Marvel at this list of groups that at one point or another have broken off from the main bunch of Mormons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latter_Day_Saint_movement
This includes, bizarrely, a bunch set up in Derbyshire this year http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Latter_Day_Church_of_Jesus_Christ started by a guy who has added his own book to the Book of Mormon
"The Book of Jeraneck was translated in 2006 by Matthew Philip Gill, who has stated he translated the book from metal plates that he received from God. The book purports to be a record of the former ancient inhabitants of the British Isles. Gill's story has many parallels to the story of Joseph Smith, Jr.'s production of the Book of Mormon as a record of ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Among the claims of the Book of Jeraneck is that Stonehenge was a Christian "Temple of Light" of the prehistorical residents of England."
