  1. Fingerpost

    A fingerpost is a name given to traditional sign posts in the United Kingdom and Ireland, comprising a post with one or more arms — known as fingers — pointing in the direction of travel to named places on the fingers. They were traditionally made from cast-iron or wood, with poles painted in black, white or grey, and fingers with black letters on a white background and often include distance information in miles. In most cases, they are used to give guidance for road users - but examples also exist on the canal network, for instance.
