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 firstname.lastname@example.org #thankyou...

Grey Rusty Royal Bollard of Regent's Park...
If you do happen to visit the park you will notice and see the various different pieces of street furniture and bollards many if not the majority with Royal approval (well crest/logo upon).
Here in the picture above we have a right grey rusty royal bollard where we can just make out the Crown above the letters GR "George Reigns". The bollard is battleship grey in colour and rusting due to neglect rather odd considering the royal parks are normally on top of there game when it comes to maintenance of any part of the park. The bollard itself is square based (4 sides) which taper slightly towards the top which then forms the shape of an octagon (8 sides) with a peaked/pyramid top.
No doubt we have CR and WR bollards to look forward to in the near and not to distant future.

I believe the R stand for, in the case of a male sovereign, Rex; for female, Regina.ReplyDelete
I stand to be corrected, of course.
