The Secret Policeman of Belgravia

Posted by Colin

Hidden amongst the white townhouses of Belgravia is a unique policeman who stands and watches the throngs as they bustle around the bars and cafés of Elizabeth Street.

But this uniformed law enforcer isn’t going to arrest you any time soon – he is a bollard. ‘PC Broxap’ stands on Gerald Road, just round the corner from Victoria Station, and outside apartments that were once Gerald Road Police Station between 1846 and 1993.

We found out about this strange and hidden part of SW1 from the Bollards of London blog – well worth a visit if you’re interested in these often overlooked stalwarts of the street.
