Dyke Road, Pair of Bollards to St Nicholas Churchyard
Local listing is different to statutory listing; it does not provide further legislative controls. and does not affect when planning permission is required. However, when planning permission is required, the ‘special interest’ of a locally listed heritage asset will be taken into account. In 2013 the council asked for nominations for inclusion in the list; over five hundred submissions were considered. The Local List of Heritage Assets was adopted on 18th June 2015, it will be reviewed in 2020; other items in the current list can be seen here.
19th century pair of cast iron bollards at the south entrance to St Nicholas churchyard. Ecclesiastical pattern with Gothic arch fluting and quatrefoil band below octagonal cap. Another pair of bollards are situated at the southern end of the path leading to the church; these are statutorily listed.
Within the Montpelier & Clifton Hill conservation area, the pair are an unusual survival which contributes positively to the area and setting of the church. They are an interesting design which makes reference to their location beside St Nicholas Church, through use of ecclesiastical designs.
