Doors 161 – Liskeard Cornwall

On a recent family holiday to Cornwall, I nipped into Liskeard, which was our nearest small town, to collect a Nepalese takeaway (which was absolutely delicious I might say). I had arrived a little early and so took the opportunity to have a quick wander and capture some doors.

Although none of these doors are particularly spectacular, they do give a flavour of the Cornish penchant for decorative porticos, which are much more common here than in some other parts of the country, or at least are features on less grand buildings. It would seem that the Cornish set great store by having a grand doorway, even if you can afford little else.

Enough hot air… here are the Liskeard doors:

More Cornish doors next week, until then, au revoir.

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.
