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...

A Message on a Bollard...
Every since I started this blog/site I've been amazed and yet pleased that we've not seen an explosion of adverts upon the humble and sometimes dandy bollards of London.
The product or should I say object does a rather good job at advertising itself in a rather inconspicuous way yet many bollards carry messages with various signs like the three I found the other week in Mayfair's little hidden (red-light) secret of Shepherd Market.
The bollards themselves are very bog standard (even the one padlocked to the pavement) but all three carry messages from the Highway Code. 'Urban Clearway' due to the building/construction site on Trebeck Street and a 'No Cycling' sign on a paved area of Shepherd Market.
