The UK has its own share of unexpected pronunciations.  A few Norfolk ones in the final section of https://www.uea.ac.uk/documents/246509/791965/Norwich+Placenames.pdf

Not forgetting the classic "Worcester/Worcestershire" as in the sauce.

And then the Welsh and the Irish can probably top anything that England can offer. :)

In Ohio, our forebearers had the chance to name a town after Worcester, Massachusetts (the New England pronunciation is Wuh-staaa).  The Ohioans decided to spell it "Wooster," instead.

When we moved to Edinburgh, Scotland many years ago we discovered a town at the other side of the Firth of Forth called Burntisland. For a long time we assumed it was situated on land that belonged to a person called Burntis. Until we were told it was actually 'burnt island'. I don't know the story behind this, but presumably there has been a big fire in the past.
