Rising Bollards...

Well with Winter here and the complete lack of snow I've been on the search for a bollard with a difference and what did I come across in this wonderful of recession hit festive seasons but the rising bollards of Imperial Wharf which just happens to be near the beautiful Chelsea Harbour.

Yes take a close look at the white reflective clad stumpy fat bollards with the amber warning glowing lights and you really do think it might just be Christmas. But on a serious note isn't it sad we need to create rising bollards let alone plant normal ones.

I'm thinking of creating an exhibition of the many bollards I've come across here in the capital. Please do let me know if you think this would be of interest to you.

  1. Hi John,
    well I thought I was the only one in the world! But somebody else likes bollards! Hooray.
    I find them fascinating, their history, design and the fact they just sit there being ignored by everyone. Everyone except idiots who drive into them.
    Thank you for blogging about them, great stuff!
    I have been photographing them, just in London, for a few years now and have posted them to flickr. They have their own set.
    I can't seem to cut and paste the link so here's the address:
    It's about half way down the page on the far right.
    Best wishes
