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...

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.
