Harting and Nyewood Fingerposts


I believe these fingerposts are an important part of our heritage and contribute to the character of our villages.

Many are falling into disrepair. The County is no longer looking after them and without some remedial work many will be lost altogether. The Parish Council is attempting to repair two, one at Turkey Island and one at Nyewood. This has been a very slow and so far unsuccessful process and I believe that some care from people in the locality would be both adequate and faster. Would you would like to look after, or adopt your local fingerpost?

Attached are pictures of, I believe, most of them. I am sure I have missed some and that some of the references may be wrong. If so I will blame Google Maps and ask that you contact the Council and they can be corrected.

Co-ordination of the above is being carried out by Councillor Dave Barnard
