Wardens of St Saviour 1827 and the Spoons...

Wardens of St Saviour 1827...




























Welcome to Cathedral Street SE1 where I came across this rather interesting looking bollard with the lettering/numbers 'Wardens of St Saviour 1827'.

The bollard is a cannon like model/make with ridged areas on the body/column and a cannon ball top finish. The Wardens of St Saviour date back to the mid 16th century and a brief history can be found on the following link at the 'The National Archives' .

A closer look...

Playing the Spoons...























































While photographing the bollard above I could hear the sound of soul/hip-hop music and the spoons.

Yes the gentleman pictured (above) was playing the spoons to soul/hip-hop music outside Southwark Cathedral. This chap was happy, an accomplished spoon player and very entertaining.

So for one post only I've decided to sideline the #guestbollard and celebrate the skills of live public spoon playing.

Bollards of London (plus the Spoons)...
