Three doors at Riverside hall, Looe, Cornwall, October 2021

Thursday doors – 18 November 2021

Doors 169 – Looe doors, Cornwall – Part 3

A quick one for you this week. The concluding part of my doors from Looe in Cornwall. You will notice that several of the doors have little brick walls in front of them. Looe is prone to flooding during high spring tides when they coincide with storm surges and low pressure. To prevent the water entering homes, walls and flood gates are placed in front of front doors. It is the owners of these homes that will need to be especially tuned in to climate change and the impacts of it.

So, here are the doors:

Well, that just about wraps things up for another week. Have a fantastic weekend, wherever you are.

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.
