A chance to learn a little Welsh but this flat Fenland landscape is a long way from the valleys.

It’s bordering on madness but roadworks signs written in Welsh and English have appeared beside the River Nene.

The internal drainage board is working on a sluice beside the riverbank, between Tydd Gote and Sutton Bridge.

One sign reads Works Access/Mynedfa Waith and the second Works Exit/Allanfa Waith, but we are a long way away from the valleys.

Sutton Bridge resident Chris Brewis, who sent in these pictures, said: “It’s incredibly funny.

“I know we border Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, but we are nowhere near Powys.”
