Back to the City, to the City tonight...!

Yes just off Aldersgate Street and Long Lane in the City of London you'll find a street by the name of Newbury Street here we find a terrific collection of bollards.

The one in the picture is made by a company just over the water in Southwark, the company name is Bailey & Pegg, 81 Bankside. In fact this bollard does look like it's had a few scraps but it basic design is similar to the rest of the Bollard except is has a flat top that appears to be filled in with cement or concrete.

Now considering the roads and pavements are pretty narrow you'll find a considerable collection of varying types of bollards all within 4oft of each other. The diversity within the square mile is amazing and they have even started to plant wooden over sized bollards to.

So yet again we find ourselves back in the City of London and who knows what other bollards we may find here in the heart of the nations banking, insurance and legal communities.

  1. Fascinating. Like many, I guess, I'd never given much thought to bollards.
