Going the extra mile?

Wrong sign

Can anyone enlighten me as to why, whether I walk or drive from Roberts Corner to Alvechurch, the signpost located there that says “Alvechurch 1 1/2 miles” seems to mislead?

From that junction I feel sure that 1 1/2 miles takes me, every time, to somewhere well the other side of Lye Meadow. Either the sign is wrong or my milometer and pedometer are wayward.

From Roberts Corner a drive of around 0.6 of a mile would get me to the bus stop outside the Chinese takeaway. Any ideas?
