    Finger Signposts

    by freya_heaven Updated Aug 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You tend to find these wonderful Victorian old finger sign posts in the more rural areas and villages, traditionally they are made of oak or cast iron as in the photo. Often written on them is the county & the parish you are in as well as directions.
