Our beautiful hand crafted hardwood timber finger post signs are built from the forests of England but return to nature as attractive signs for deployment to our country lanes & village greens for a lifetime of service of pointing the way throughout our lovely countryside
Some of these great trees were here at the time of the Spanish Armada back in 1588 & we respect that so only trees that have been selected as unsafe are used in the construction of our wooden finger post signs
The Ashdown Forest provides all of our selected seasoned construction grade English Oak for constructing our all hardwood finger post signs. This great forest that once produced the armoured arrow heads & fletchers that were used in the Battle of Agincourt back in 1415 now give up it's fine oaks for our finger post projects
We use granite from the English Channel to bed our finger post signs into the ground as this prevents any decay just as with railway sleepers
We make our own oak dowels just as they did back in the time of the building of Nelsons Grand Fleet in 1805
Our cast metal lettering is hand made and can be permenantly reused as well the brass screws that secure the lettering.
We make as well as refurbish the cast iron post crowns that protect the end grain on the top of the wooden finger posts signs.
very old wooden finger post signs that are beyond economical repair are cut up for fire wood, the post crowns & any cast lettering is refurbished for new sign projects.
We use air breathing Sadolin paints that do not crack, lift or blister but protect the timber by allowing it to breath, expand & contract naturally.

Jack Hargreaves was my inspiration to make a living working out in the British countryside. I used to watch his great program ''Out of Town'' every week without fail.
