Thursday doors – 5 August 2021

Doors 156 – Lyme Regis part 1

At last some original and new doors, rather than something recycled from my archives.

My wife, daughter, dog and I had a mini break a little while ago, experimenting with a hired camper van to see if it is something we would like to do on a more regular basis. The jury is still out on that one. We stayed in a delightful and well-appointed campsite in Uplyme in Devon. A forty-minute walk following the course of the River Lim through woodlands and fields eventually led us to Lyme Regis across the border in Dorset.

Lyme Regis is famous for its fossils, being at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, and for its beach and sea front. The days we were there was at the start of a mini-heatwave in the UK, and the south-facing seaside town felt more like the Mediterranean than England. I suppose the give-away that we were still home were the vast hordes of hideous grockles (holiday-makers). How is it that the Brits are so awful on holiday? I suppose I have to include myself in that cohort, but we really are an embarrassing, unclassy lot.

Enough tittle-tattle, here are some doors from our little trip:

Another week tumbles by, and we become another week older and wiser. I hope to have some more doors from Lyme Regis for you next week. Until then TTFN.

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.

  1. I thought I was going to say “… is my favorite” opn two occasions. Then I got to that seafront house. Wow – clear winner! I do like the beach huts, the old door and the closed shop on the hill, but that last photo is wonderful. I’m glad you were able to get away and I’m very happy you thought to snag some doors.
