Thursday doors

Door 19

Graffiti door, Lydstep Terrace, Bristol

This door is at the end of a derelict factory building or warehouse in Lydstep Terrace. I can’t find out much about what the building used to be, but it has no roof and is in a pretty shoddy state. I managed to find a council document that refers to the site as an unlisted building of merit.

It is pretty clear that this door is closed to all visitors. No entry, shut, barred, locked…you’re not getting in.

The long wall to the left of the door is a magnet for graffiti and tagging and has used by street art wannabes as a practice wall. The graffiti here has come to something of an abrupt halt however as developers have recently moved in and are getting quite busy doing something. It will be interesting to see what they make of this rather unexceptional building.

Gentrification in progress. The taggers will have to move on.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
