Fingerposts are quirky old-fashioned road signs. SVCS has restored one in the Spen Valley. But there are others which are badly in need of some TLC. Spen Valley has other ancient road markers too, like milestones. We even had a foundry at Millbridge in Spen Valley producing metal milestones in the 19th Century.
In 2005 SVCS members totally renovated the "finger" post at the top of Hightown Road (pictured above left). This road sign gives local distances in miles and fractions of a mile, and the post is cast iron.
If you find a milestone or fingerpost sign in Spen Valley that needs repair, please get in touch with us!
