|Britton Street EC1...|
We are in Britton Street EC1 where I found this rather interesting bollard just down from one of London's most interesting pubs the Jerusalem Tavern the pub has been on this site since 1720. Now the bollard featured in this post is rather unusual looking due to its hexagonal 'nut' shaped looking base.
So we have a silver coloured bollard with a hexagonal shaped base that quickly merges into a circular ridge. Protruding from the base is a long vertical cylindrical column that finally flares outwards to form a thin plate area that then holds an almost trophy like stand which tapers inwards and then holds the near perfect ball top finish.
If we take a look at the picture (below) we see an above elevation picture of this near perfect shaped ball top with a little wear of the silver paint work revealing a metal surface beneath.

The #guestbollards (above) featured on this post is supplied by the one and only Patrick Baty who just happened to be over in Charlestown, South Carolina, USA where Patrick happened to notice a pair of stone bollards outside the Heyward-Washington House in Church Street.
We happen to have two very different looking bollards on this post but each linking our nations past history from the Crusades in the 12th century and the American War of Independence in the 18th.
