Bassett's Pole is a roundabout on the A38 in Staffordshire serving the A453 and A446.

According to a plaque on the pole itself, the name comes from Lord Bassett of Drayton who erected a boundary pole here in the reign of King John and the year of our Lord 1201, on the border between the counties of Stafford and Warwick.
