A little something for our friends at “Bollards of London” .
Firmly at the foot of the learning curve as far as bollards go I feel safe to say but little. This fine iron piece keeps twin-track vehicles out of the motorcycle park near Pig Meadow Lane in Liskeard.
The bollard bears the Duchy Coat of Arms (sans motto). As you all know the fifteen bezants stand for the ransom paid to the Saracens for the release of the Duke during the Crusades. Bezant being a mediaeval term for a gold coin of the Byzantine Empire.
Tell that to young people today and see where it gets you.
