Workmen were back in Gabriel's Hill in the centre of Maidstone today, digging up the newly laid paving.
The reason? To remove the one of the history stones that had included a wrong spelling.
Maidstone Borough Council had finished its £3 million street regeneration scheme by inserting history panels at strategic points along the road.
Unfortunately the panel at the top of Gabriel's Hill read: "1600: Maidstone as principle market town".
It should have said "principal market town."
The council was quick to act after the error was highlighted on KentOnline.
The offending slab has been removed and the hole filled in with paving bricks.
