Sign post. 1743. Gritstone. Approximately 1.20 metres high, square
section. Inscriptions: east face - 'The Road To (Br)adford ( ) Miles. 1743'
with hand pointing south above. North face - 'The Road To Otley ( ) Miles'
with hand above pointing to west, 'The Road to Knaresborough ( ) Miles' with
hand pointing east. The post dates from the time when the ford over the
River Wharfe at Castley carried the main traffic to Bradford from Harrogate.
It was probably defaced when the ford went out of use, late C19.
