If you take a stroll around Richmond you may end up near the green where you'll come across a beautiful area surrounded by the odd Royal Bollard of Richmond.
The bollard is almost shard like in shape and ribbed. Sitting upon a square base and planted firmly into the paved area the four sides rise upwards literally double into eight and taper towards a peaked octagonal shaped top. The badge upon the side of the bollard is clearly a crown with the roman numerals two underneath and the initials ER standing for Elizabeth Regina. Painted a matt white these bollards surrounding the green at Richmond stand out even in the darkness and certainly catch the headlamps of any passing motor vehicle.
Welcome to a summer special of Bollards of London...
Not unlike the steeple on Hawksmoor's St George's Bloomsbury.ReplyDelete
