We all make spelling mistakes from time to time. But it is unfortunate indeed when your spelling error is carved in stone and set in the centre of a busy pavement for thousands to see each day.That is what has happened to Maidstone Borough Council.As the culmination of the borough’s £3m street regeneration scheme which has seen months of work laying new paving stones in Week Street and Gabriel’s Hill, the council’s contractors have now installed history panels at strategic points along the road.The idea is the slabs will mark out a time-line of Maidstone’s past with key events like the Battle of Maidstone recorded.Sadly the slab recently installed at the top of Gabriel’s Hill reads: “1600: Maidstone as principle market town”We feel sure they meant principal market town, meaning chief or prominent market town.A principle market town would suggest a town where the borough’s principles or values and beliefs were for sale. They surely wouldn’t mean that would they?
