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...

A Gem of a City Bollard...
At the top King Street in the City of London we come to Guildhall Court Yard and right at its entrance we find a row of rising bollards with some of the usual bollards we normally see in the City (Square mile) everyday.
In the picture above we have managed to capture a rising bollard on the right hand side (still in the City/Corporation of London colours of black, white and red) with a more traditional looking bollard in the middle but on the left hand side we have found an absolute gem, a real one off that I have never seen before in the Square Mile.
The bollard on the left of the picture is most usual and unique at the same time for it has a rather large square base with a vertical body up until the red band where the body then tapers and forms an octagonal shaped top that rises slightly to be finished off with a nipple. The body of the bollard is painted predominately black with two red stripes. A badge on the front of the bollard is shield like and forms a George Cross, the upper part of the bollard is white in colour with only a red band on the nipple at the very top.
