Yellow Topped With Chains...

The most common type of bollard to be found in rather large numbers is this style used by the Westminster City Council and the Royal Parks. Here though this style of two thirds ribbed is used to define a boundary and to separate pedestrians and vehicles along Stories Gate by the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre.

Notice the yellow coloured top plus the black and yellow chain now interlinking the bollards. It really amazes me the lengths we go to mark boundaries within the capital. We may well be a global hub for banking, finance and even the home of democracy but we must be up there with the gods when it comes to bollards.

Welcome to a Nation of Bollards...
