Fingerposts are found where a Public Right of Way reaches a road. Any other sign along a route is known as a waymark.
Waymark posts will only be installed or replaced in exceptional circumstances and only if the route of the path is also unclear from a 1:25000 Ordnance Survey Map. These issues are commonly dealt with under our 5 year rolling programme. Still want to tell us?
If the disks are faded or damaged it is likely that this will be dealt with by our inspectors during their 5-year rolling programme surveys. Still want to tell us? To see where your parish is on the programme, click here.
Sometimes signs are put on Public Rights of Way giving you advice about the land which you are walking through, e.g. to warn of livestock in fields and requesting that dogs are kept on leads. These signs are allowed but they must not make you feel intimidated or that you should not be there.
Where a path crosses a field which is usually cropped landholders have a responsibility to mark out the line of the path on the ground to indicate which direction you should follow. This is not always necessary if waymark posts are visible on either side of the crossing.
It is not a function of the highway authority to erect information signs other than those indicating the legal alignment and status of a route.
