Let it Snow, Let is Snow, Let it Snow.

What a festive season this is fast becoming with even more snow falling on central London this evening but who could miss a chance to snap a Westminster City Council security bollard on Great Peter Street SW1 with a light dusting of snow on its top. With weather like this all I seek now is a Corporation of London for the win treble.

Happy Christmas once again and please do email me with any interesting pictures of bollards at !

Rising Bollards...

Well with Winter here and the complete lack of snow I've been on the search for a bollard with a difference and what did I come across in this wonderful of recession hit festive seasons but the rising bollards of Imperial Wharf which just happens to be near the beautiful Chelsea Harbour.

Yes take a close look at the white reflective clad stumpy fat bollards with the amber warning glowing lights and you really do think it might just be Christmas. But on a serious note isn't it sad we need to create rising bollards let alone plant normal ones.

I'm thinking of creating an exhibition of the many bollards I've come across here in the capital. Please do let me know if you think this would be of interest to you.
