|A very simple stone bollard...|
Welcome to the Regent's Canal in east London and please do admire this rather simple looking bollard with a circular base/domed top that happens to sit behind a Danger/warning sign letting canal/boat users know that their is a weir on the right hand side/archway.
In July this year British Waterways ceased to exist (in England and Wales) and has been replaced by the 'Canal and River Trust'. I must say doesn't the brickwork in the background look amazing. I often wonder what many of the glass buildings will look like 25 years later let alone 100 years plus.
Over the next few posts on the blog/site you'll notice that I've moved away from Westminster/Chelsea. The time has come to look further afield from the central London boroughs and seek bollards where ever they maybe. Considering this was my first foray/search around this part of east London I did rather well collecting many fine photographs of old/new bollards.

We have no #guestbollard on this particular post because I was pleased to see (below) a swan and cygnet (dingy brown colour) here on the Regent's Canal and very close to London's extremely busy Commercial Road. Can I say even though British Waterways is now defunct they should be proud at the work they've done to keep this canal and its water looking so clean.
