A NEW road sign has left villagers scratching their heads and asking "Where's E gone?"
Sign writers have blundered by missing out the second `E' in Shelley on a sign at Jagger Lane, Emley Moor.
Villagers and councillors are now asking for the sign to be corrected.
In July, Shelley was crowned the best small village in Yorkshire.
Chris James, 33, of Emley, drives past the sign every day on his way to work as a mechanical engineer.
He says that people may think the spelling is not important, but Shelley should be spelt correctly.
"It is a bit poor," he said. "I see it every day and it grates a bit each time I pass it.
"Someone not from the area must have written the sign, but that is not really an excuse, they should be checking to make sure the spelling is right.
"I don't think it will cost that much to get the sign replaced - so I think the council should get it sorted as soon as possible."
Clr Elaine Wade agreed the sign should be corrected.
She said: "Shelley is the best small village in Yorkshire and deserves to have its name spelt correctly on signs.
"There are a lot of walkers in that area and I suppose it could be confusing for them.
"I would hope it is an error on the part of the sign writer and not the council."
But Kirklees Council have pledged to return Shelley's second `E' soon.
A council spokesman said: "Thank you for drawing it to our attention. We will get it put right as soon as possible."
