These hilarious handmade signs advertise a ‘boating lake’ in a road littered with potholes.
The placards – advertising ‘North Curry Boating Lake’ and ‘Fishing Permits from Highways’ – were put in a huge pothole in North Curry, Somerset.
Long-suffering local Dave Patten made the signs after becoming frustrated at the lack of action to fill in the waterlogged pothole on Stoke Road in the village.
Mr Patten said: “North Curry can now boast a new boating lake along with all its other sports facilities.
“Courtesy of highways, who have failed to fill in an ever enlarging pothole for the last year, Curry people may soon be able to fish or swim by the roadside.”
He believes the road surface there has been broken up by heavy goods vehicles driven along the road between North Curry and Stoke St Gregory.
A spokesman for Somerset County Council said: “We’re always grateful to residents for flagging up problems on the highway.
“We’re already aware of this damaged verge and have arranged for repairs to take place over the next few weeks when Stoke Road is closed for drainage work.
“This keeps any disruption to a minimum.”
