Dorset Fingerpost Project

April 12, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Roger Bond will give a presentation about the Dorset Fingerpost Project. Fingerposts are a common feature of the Dorset countryside and their design, (metal ‘polo mint’ shape) is thought to be unique. Along with other roadside features like traditional phone boxes and bridge plates they contribute to local character.

Many of the originals have now gone, and those that exist are in danger of disappearing through damage or decay. This project by a Dorset AONB group is aiming to identify, list and repair existing fingerposts and is considering reinstatement where they’ve been lost.

Free to members, non members welcome, £3 entrance.
