Something left on the road is not quite right here.
The arrow heading to the right on road signage advising pedestrians to look left is painted on a road in Folkestone.
The error on the junction with The Leas and the Road of Remembrance was pointed out again today some three years after it was first noticed.
It was highlighted by Acula Creations, based in Sandgate Road, and posted on Twitter this morning.
The error, next to the Step Short Memorial Arch, was first posted on Instagram by visitor Wayne Spillet in October 2014 and suggested coining a new phrase about how not all is as it seems.
But 'Folkestone Left' never really caught on in every day use.
The paint on the road remains but Kent Highways has promised it would be sending a contractor to cover over the arrow.
A spokesman said the authority could not carry out the work today while it is raining.
Mystery still surrounds who put the arrow there with KCC saying the painted words were not something their staff had carried out.
One theory is that it was a prankster adding the arrow after the words were painted on to the road surface, with another suggesting it was a quirky installation for the Triennial.
