It's been the subject of heated debate up on the coast at Hunstanton.

As you approach the seaside town's Redgate Hill roundabout, a big flower and a white arrow invites you to turn back down the A149 the way you've come.

To confuse matters somewhat further, it comes after a sign a mile or so earlier, with a flower and an arrow pointing straight on.

Posters on the EDP King's Lynn facebook page had a few suggestions.

'Flower picking jobs round the roundabout,' asked many Ellwood.

Pat Ranger added: 'Go back, you missed the garden centre. And Angela James posted: 'Flowers send you round the bend.'

Norfolk County Council solved the mystery. A spokesman said it showed the way to Norfolk Lavender.
