Just when I thought the French had one over us with 'bollart' along comes a chap by the @twitter name of @mcmoondog who just happens to have a rather interesting blog http://www.slymoon.blogspot.com it also turns out @mcmoondog has created some fantastic 'bollart' and I thought I'd feature this fantastic stick of 'Manchester Rock' which happens to be in an area known has 'Miles Platting' (please note map reference on this post is not precise).
Miles Platting is certainly an urban environment (see picture above) complete with tower blocks and gasholders pictured in the background but I must say this piece of urban 'bollart' certainly brought a smile to my face and made a piece of rather bland looking street furniture look rather interesting.
Over at the parent blog of Bollards of London I've featured some French, Parisian 'bollart' I'm pleased to confirm with this post today that Paris may well be in the lead at present but with this stick of rock @mcmoondog has certainly put Britain and Manchester back on the map with this excellent piece of urban artwork 'bollart'.
