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 firstname.lastname@example.org #thankyou...

What's the Buzz about Bollards...?
Pop down to Waterford Road off the New King's Road and you might come across these bee striped steel bollards protecting a border/piece of commercial property.
I must say don't these bollards look ugly and certainly make a semi industrial area look even worse. If people/businesses who own property private/public intend to plant objects to protect a border should they not think about better looking street furniture ?
Bollards are everywhere no matter where you travel in the metropolis or any other large city here in the UK, so if we are going to use these street objects to define protect and create borders should we not at least ensure they look reasonable and not look like the above.
