BIDEFORD

SS4526 HIGH STREET 842-1/5/96 (South side) Bollard set into corner of 1 High St adjoining The Quay

GV II

Bollard. Probably C16 or C17. Painted stone. Sharply-battered fluted shaft with prominent rounded necking and large ball finial. Latterly its function must have been to protect the corner of the building from carts, but it may originally have stood on the quay, which has been considerably widened. It has also been suggested that this was the 'tome stone .... on which payments and binding agreements were made without recourse to pen and paper.' (Grant A: The Book of Bideford: Buckingham: 1987-: P.16, 20).
