|Stone eroding bollard...|
|Bollards outside the Lion Gate...|
If you look at the photographs (above/below) you'll notice the bollards have a square base rise vertically for a short distance before they begin to taper inwards and capped off with a shallow pyramid shaped top.
I took these photographs of the bollards at night but it might be worth clicking on the link 'Lion Gate Piers' and marvel at the beautiful gate and learn a little about the conservation work that happens to be going on at Hampton Court Palace.
You might be wondering why a Greyhound and a Dragon happen to be sitting upon a decorative post. Well these photographs were taken by 'Patrick Baty' who just so happens to be an Historical Paint Consultant. Patrick has been working at Hampton Court Palace and I simply admire the work this gentlemen does keeping the colours of many places/palaces/objects historically correct.
