A sign which has been confusing visitors in Hunstanton is set to be moved.
It has been put up as part of a £1.3m revamp of the resort's heritage gardens.
But while its map is oriented with north at the top and west and east on left and right, it appears to show the sea and cliffs in the wrong place.
A West Norfolk council spokesman said: 'The signage was only installed last week. The project brief requires the signage to face into the project not away from it. This causes a problem because the maps are oriented north.
'It is fairly obvious to see where you are in relation to the sea, so shouldn't cause too much confusion, but we do get the point being made. In addition, the location of this signage was signed off during the consultation stages of this project.

'Now it is in situ, we are not happy with the way it interrupts the view of the chapel and the view of the lighthouse from the chapel. 'We will be reviewing the signage in the coming week to see if an alternative and more suitable location can be identified.'
