St. Luke's Chelsea 1820...

With 2011 about to come to an end it is befitting to find a bollard dated 1820 sitting upon the King's Road Chelsea in such an obvious place.

The bollard clearly carries the marking 'St Luke's Chelsea' 1820. What is it about the year 1820 is it of significance well a quick search on google leads me to St Luke's Gardens on Sydney Street just around the corner from the King's Road and this wonderful bollard.

The foundation stone for St Luke's Church was laid in 1820.

Bollards of London would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you all for your support and pictures of #guestbollards.
