Last month I wondered why a small village in Cambridgeshire should be twinned with the celebrated German city of Weimar. Now comes an email from the eagle-eyed James Miller who reveals that
The “Weimar” twinned with Sawtry is not the grand seat of European culture.
In fact it’s a small district about 10km south of Marburg, in Hessen, on the river Lahn.
The main town is Niederweimar (try Googe images).
It’s nice to have these puzzles solved.
