High Timber Street EC4...

The City of London...
Welcome to High Timber Street EC4 in the 'City of London'  where I came across a collection of bollards made by the company 'Furnitubes' which protect the pillars/base of the walkway/road crossing.

These bollards are a general type that we tend to find dotted across the capital. The distinctive red rings combined with the black/white paint identify it has the City of London. I was interested in this collection because it is rare to find non-ornate bollards within or at the edges/boundaries of the square mile.

I do love the picture (below) and I'm of the opinion that the stone/brickwork came first and the bollards were installed/planted afterwards. Note the disruption to the stonework by the sunken bollard.

The bollards or the bricks...

Bollards of London...


  1. I would like to send you a photo of some nice bollards from Perpignan, France, that have been withstanding traffic and etc for many many years. But I don't seem to be able to send them to your site. how do I send you a pic?

  2. Email address is contained in the short script under the title of the blog/site.

    Thank you,
