taken 8 years ago, near to Highworth, Swindon, England

Highworth: Wrde Hill sign
Highworth: Wrde Hill sign
This might pass as a pronounceable word in Welsh, but it does look rather out of place in a Wiltshire suburb. The explanation is that Highworth was 'Wrde' in the Domesday Book - presumably morphing into the 'worth' bit of the present-day name.
