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...

Big George Webley RIP...
This project is down to one man a radio presenter and a talented musician called "Big George Webley" who I had the pleasure of knowing. I've laughed with him, nearly cried with him and even fell out with him but like a true working class man he was pleased to hear from you and say hello. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-13327591
He was such a talented musician/composer just read the credits of "Have I got news for you" and I'll always remember his wise words of advice "never give up the opportunity to keep your mouth shut", I can hear him saying that now...
I had the pleasure of sitting in a radio studio broadcasting with him, he was such a patriot and I'll always remember a broadcast about the "Cenotaph" in Whitehall with him. If you click on the link below you can hear the piece, to me the poem and the last post is a befitting honour to a wonderful kind talented man called "Big George Webley"

The colour of the bollards says it all for me...
