Bollards-with-Chain of Parliament Square...

Close to the statue of the great statesman  and former Prime Minister Winston Churchill (1874-1965) we find these rather interesting stone bollards attached to each other by a spiked chain.

The bollards are square based with a tapering edge/sides that rise vertically to form a octagonal shaped top, which finally rises to form a centre point. The spiked chain is firmly placed into the upper part of the body of the bollard and enough chain is used to provide the near perfect curve.

The stone body of these bollards appears to be eroding away slightly, if we look closely at the bollard nearest to us in the picture we can see a pitted surface.
