Doors 150 – Blaise Hamlet (part 2) 

This is the second set of photographs of Blaise Hamlet, a small National Trust estate of ‘Lilliputian’ cottages in North Bristol, where posting doors is really an excuse for me to share this amazing place with you, as the doors themselves aren’t really anything too special.

I managed to visit a couple of weeks ago with the dog in tow, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This small oasis reminds us of days gone by and a less complicated time that offers a sense of peace and tranquility. Enjoy the second part of this visit:

I hope that you have enjoyed the quick tour of these delightful cottages, and strongly recommend that if you find yourself in Bristol with 30 minutes to kill, a quick visit would be very worthwhile.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors  from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.

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.

  1. Coming to Bristol would pose a problem right now, I think! Haven’t kept up with international travel. But if I ever come to Bristol, I know where t go. These are delightful houses and doors! Thank you for sharing, Jesh

    1. It is a wonderful city, and one with an extraordinary history, not all of it necessarily good (slave trading created much of the city’s wealth). At one time it was one of the most important trading cities in the world.
