The Crown Pole 2002
The "Crown Pole" is not a conventional signpost. The top eight fingers in descending order point to Audenshaw, Stalybridge, Dukinfield, Denton, Ashton-under-Lyne, Mossley, Longdendale (almost invisible here as it points directly at the camera) and Droylsden. The bottom finger, presumably added to give balance, merely points "South".
It was erected in 2002, along with others in Tameside, to commemorate the golden jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
On the market ground opposite Corporation Street, it replaced former flower tubs.
