And how are you spelling that...

The people of Norfolk have a trick up their sleeves.

They’ve kept their powder dry whilst the Welsh have gone all out to advertise it.

The trick - that their place names are spelt nothing like they are pronounced.

With Welsh, you know you’re not going to be able to pronounce it correctly. With Norfolk you walk straight into the trap without realising.

Lets face it, Hunstanton looks like it should be Hun-stan-ton. Wymondham looks like it should by Wy-mond-ham.

So how the hell do you get Hunsten from Hunstanton and Windem from Wymondham?
