Fingerpost, Kirkby Stephen
The black and white fingerpost sign is unusual because the distance measurements are in furlongs and not, as is customary, miles. The furlong, now used mainly as the distances in horse racing, originating in Anglo-Saxon England is the equivalent to 220 yd or 201.168 m.(Acknowledgement to LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
