Welcome to Bollards of Britain a site dedicated to those rather odd looking pavement objects you find in the most common and interesting places. Bollards have history richer than most objects we find upon the pavement and we can easily find some that date back to the early 19th century. Welcome once again to Bollards of Britain and please do follow me on the twitter @BollardsEngland or contact me via/email firstname.lastname@example.org #thankyou

Let us first look at the picture in greater detail, the reflection of the neon yellow sign upon the rain sodden uneven tarmac is just beautiful. The bollard is very similar to those we see in the City of London (below). It has an octagonal shaped body leading/rising vertically towards the first ridge that leads us to a five pointed star area topped off with a black painted ridge complete with its orange juice squeezer top. If we compare the Margate bollard to those on Stonecutter Street in the City of London we can see that the base is square on the City bollards plus the body appears longer and tapers slightly towards top/head of bollard.
'Dreamland, Margate' firmly on the Bollards of Britain map.
I do hope many of you are pleased that bollards are back, thank you all once again.
