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 @BollardsEngland or via gmail email@example.com #thankyou...

The City Collection...
With the return of bonus culture in the square mile I thought we should take another look at the city bollards and never fear the corporation must have a budget for bollards that would please some parish councils.
Back to the bollards here at Fann Street on the edge of the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates we have a collection of city of London bollards all doing very different jobs but still a generic bollard with a slight difference or could I say derivative (sorry couldn't help that).
The bollard to the right is part of a fire gate hence the chain/padlock draped around it. To its left is a no motorcycle sign bollard (this is a cycle/bike path), in the background we have a bollard which more than likely has a sign facing in the other direction and finally two bollards with the white arrow on a blue background denoting a one way direction of travel.
Next week Gray's Inn bollard and further bollards of the square mile...
