Knitted Bollard...

A knitted bollard...
Welcome to Steyning High Street West Sussex and a wonderful knitted bollard found by @MrHappySW11 on the twitter.

I'm not sure what is topping the knitted bollard off but it looks colourful and interesting. The main body of the bollard appears to be covered in a near harlequin pattern.

Urban knitting/knitters are everywhere and not just in our cities and strike when you least expect.

Bollard of London...

PS a huge thank you to Robin for this wonderful bollard and please do say hello to Bruno your Welsh Terrier.

Welcome to Charlestown Cannon Bollard....


A Cannon bollard






























Welcome to Charlestown harbour and a super cannon bollard just by the quayside. The harbour dates back to the 18th century and supported a once thriving fishing and china clay industry. The harbour is presently owned by Square Sail who don't just manage the harbour but are involved in the TV/Film industry.

Take a look at the bollard (cannon) above notice the flared end (muzzle), look at the circular area on the top which has been filled in. Now take a look at the cannon below and look along the barrel towards the muzzle and you should notice that the end flares outwards just like the bollard (cannon) buried in the quayside.

Charlestown is a grade II listed harbour and the local village all form part of a World Heritage site, if you do happen to visit whilst on your travels/holiday please do take time to visit the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre it's where I found this super cannon outside the front entrance.
