    That's so odd! The distance is even accurate and in miles, so it's not like someone stole the sign and decided to put it up for a laugh (odd enough) but must've had it made!

    Civray and Downham are twinned. There was probably some presentation that I don't remember. As you say, it is odd and somehow seems no less odd each time I ride past it.

    The reverse exchange is next to some road signs, but they're not strange and it's not one:

    I know it's a point of honour in Wales that everything is bilingual. So I can only assume that one line of the road sign is in English French and the other in Welsh French...

    One from yesterday's ride, out near the fabulously-named "Foul Anchor": "PLEASE DIP HEADLIGHTS WHEN SHIPS APPROACHING". I don't know if the flashing corner markers are triggered by ships or headlights.

    Not strange but very informative for the numerically challenged.
