Welcome to bollards of London (incorporating bollards of Britain), a site dedicated to those rather odd looking pavement objects you find in the most interesting of places.
Bollards have a history richer than most objects placed upon the pavement and we can easily find some from the earlier part of the 19th Century.
Welcome once again to bollards of London and please do follow/contact me on the twitter @bollardoflondon or via gmail email@example.com #thankyou...

These three Bollards can be found by the Thames in Richmond and how beautiful they are. We can see they have a square base that is planted in the cobble stones that immediately forms a curve that flares outwards to form a circular lip that now forms a tapering cylindrical column which again flares outward and then tiers inwards to form a rather dandy strawberry shaped top.
The bollards have ornate patterns on the side of each of a floral design, the bollards in Richmond are ornate/dandy and pretty marvellous and the search for others will continue throughout Greater London.
