On comedy road signs

[Missing fingerpost]

Just outside the town of Sandwich is a hamlet called Ham.

It's a difficult village to find. Whenever a sign is erected directing you to the place, it's stolen within days. The root of the problem lies in the name of the village and that of its neighbouring town.

[Ham Sandwich]

Proudly displayed in houses throughout the county must be fingerpost signs with the combined directions. The closest I could find to the most stolen sign in Britain is this eight-foot version. Evidently student bedrooms don't have sufficient wall-space to display it in all its glory.
