A guidepost stands at the junction of Kedleston Road and Allestree Lane, Derby. It takes the form of a traditional finger post with shaped pointers. In 1983 it was described as being in reasonable condition. A photograph shows the post partly engulfed by a nearby hedge. There appears to be a ball finial, painted black, above an annulus (which may have contained a crest). The signs are white with black lettering. That pointing north appears to show 'QUARNDON 1' and below it 'KEDLESTON 3', although the distances are slightly obscured by branches. That pointing south has 'DERBY' - again branches obscure the mileage, assuming that one is given. (1)
Viewing the site on Google Streetview suggests that the guidepost has become completely engulfed by vegetation and that the finger signs may be missing. (2)
