IT's all become rather embarrassing.
A town centre map on the Royston Town Centre Forum website is of Stanford - in the UNITED STATES.
Town centre manager Geraint Burnell said there had been a "technical problem".
He said that the a map of the town centre had disappeared about three weeks ago and then replaced by the one showing the vicinity of Stanford University.

He described the problem as "a bit of clever technology that has gone wrong".
The website, he said, was probably picking up the wrong co-ordinates which resulted in the map appearing.
"The website worked for three years without a problem and suddenly it's not working.
"The town centre map was as accurate as it could be, but it wasn't several thousands of miles out," he said.
Mr Burnell said he was still not aware about the time it would take to "repair" the website.
"We've been trying for three weeks," he added. "We hope to have normal service resumed soon.
