The Fingerpost after the 2007 refurbishment

The Fingerpost is a relatively unremarkable junction on A4124 in Staffordshire. It is a fairly standard traffic light controlled crossroads, although two left turns are provided for.

It is, however, extremely well-known in the locality by virtue of the landmark ornate fingerpost which stands at the location. The post itself features a lamp and ornate "hands" on top of the usual directional arms. The Fingerpost itself was refurbished by Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council in 2007. During this work, the original arms were removed and replaced by new ones which included the current road numbers rather than the previous set which had not been updated since the upgrade of B4155 to A4124 in the 1970s.
