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...

Stephendale Road SW.6...
We are in Fulham SW.6 at Stephendale Road where I came across this rather dandy slightly old looking bollard.
With a solid square base that soon turns to beautiful smooth curves which then morph into a curved octagonal base reducing in size and then rising upwards, vertically and leads us to a ridge which then flares outwards and creates an almost fruit or acorn look to the top part of this pretty old bollard.
A lot of time and effort appears to have gone into the casting of this rather beautiful bollard, with layers of paint chipping/falling off. To the right of the bollard we find two posts rather bland/boring but serving the same purpose.
