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...

Just off the Lower Richmond Road and very close to the embankment of the river Thames we find a rather modern Putney blue bollard upon the pavement.
A very simple cylindrical shape with two groves near the domed top end. However if you take a closer look into the back drop you'll notice that these particular Putney blue bollards double up has posts and then have railings attached which allows the local council to then make a fence.
Nice to see a good mature tree planted in the ground doing the same job of the bollard but on a much grander scale.
