Unusual Signs
Managed By: Icon Here Spell Checkers.
Description:
The idea of this category is to find and mark incorrect or confusing official signs. They can be printed or pictorial signs that have corrupted the English or any other language (please include English translation and explanation) or are just plain confusing. These would also include funny or misdirected road or directional signs. Upside down is also accepted if it is clearly a permanent orientation and not the temporary influence of attachment failure or storm damage.

On the main valley road up the Cartmel valley is this lovely milestone. Unfortunately the stone mason was probably illiterate and reversed the S in Hawkshead. Other S's are correct.
