Shitterton: approach road
Shitterton: approach road
This road leads down to the picturesque hamlet of Shitterton. The village's name causes the sign to be stolen frequently, this it is often replaced and keeps up with the design of the time. In 2006 it was white: SY8495 : Shitterton

The name of Shitterton was embarrassing enough to the Ordnance Survey that it dropped the H on its maps and called it Sitterton about 20 years ago. The H has recently been restored on both the 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 maps.
