The finger post has three arms, painted white with black lettering. The ends of the arms are shaped to give the impression of a pointing finger. One arm reads 'DORE 6 / SHEFFIELD 10¾' followed by 'A6187', another reads 'BAMFORD 2¼ / CASTLETON 5½', followed by 'A6187' and the third reads 'GRINDLEFORD 3 / BAKEWELL 9¼' followed by 'B6001'. (5)
