Highgate West Hill 1826...

A very tall imposing 'cannon' type bollard.
St. P/S.W.D/1826 another 19th century bollard ?

With a square shaped shallow base this rather tall 'cannon' type bollard quickly turns into a rather sturdy/chunky circular column which is ridged/ribbed at lower and upper parts in equal proportions.

The top section of the bollards is painted black with a white half ball shaped top. On the main body of the bollard we can see the lettering St.P/S.W.D/1826 (picture above) have we managed to come across another bollard from the early part of the 19th century ?

We are approaching the 200th post (bollard) here on the blog/site and it is fascinating to be still finding bollards so different and of such an age here in the capital.

  1. Apparently 'St. Pancras Street Works Department, 1826' but you probably knew that.
