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...
Welcome back to 'Bollards of London' I have had a break from the blog but considering a programme is on bbc 4 tonight about street furniture it seems appropriate to start over again with a super set of #guestbollards from Glasgow !
Welcome to a New Year and a look inside a Westminster City Council bog standard bollard.
If we examine the photograph (above) we can see the bollard is a rectangular iron/structure (rusting) encased within a molded composite material which is in the main ribbed and painted finished a gloss black. The bollard must have been struck by a pretty hard object vehicle to have cracked the casing material.
The first #guestbollard (below) to be featured in 2014 happens to be from Nr 24th/Valencia San Francisco, USA supplied to us by @MBridegam on the twitter, a huge thank you for these wonderful urban camouflage bollards. What a start to 2014 !
