The Leaning Bollard of Lambeth...

A Lambeth leaning bollard...

Welcome to Black Prince Road, Kennington SE11 where I found 'The Leaning Bollard of Lambeth' outside the The Black Prince Public  House.
We've seen a similar design (orange squeezer top) top within the City of London but a little thinner. This bollard though is leaning and could easily become an odd attraction for the area around us just happens to be part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate (Royal) and due to Kennington being rather close to the Palace of Westminster (Parliament) it is also known has division bell land with plenty of MP's living in the area.
The bollard is octagonal in shape and tapers upwards towards a band/ridged area which contains a star for each side/face of the octagonal body. We then meet another band/ridged area which tapers outwards with a smooth finished band/ridge before the bollard is finished off with a flatter looking orange squeezer top.
If we look at the lamp post and corner of the public house (above/below) both give us a vertical line and prove beyond a reasonable doubt that we have 'The Leaning Bollard of Lambeth' !

A cracking collection of stone bollards from Rome...


A huge thank you once again to @LondonStone on the twitter for the excellent photographs of many bollards he sent whilst on a recent trip to Rome.
So our #guestbollards are from Rome and what a collection we have here. These stone bollards vary slightly in style/design but they all play an important part protecting the beautiful stone columns/brickwork and deterring motor vehicles from driving through the wonderful tall archway. Don't those cobble stones look beautiful.
