Thursday doors – 7 April 2022

Doors 180 – Some doors from the city of Westminster, Greater London

I work as a civil servant, and my department is based in London, although I report to an office in Bristol. As we emerge into a new normal, my immediate team (four of us, each located in different parts of England) have decided to get together for meetings once a month in London at our main office. The most recent meeting was last Friday, and the walk from Westminster underground station to the department takes me past some rather grand doors. Here are some of them I thought worthy of sharing:

Perhaps I can bag another clutch of doors next time I return to the London office, that’s yer lot for now though.

May I wish you a pleasant weekend.

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. These are excellent. I think I’d try every different way of walking to and from the station, although I’d hate for you to be late to the meeting on the account of doors. Well, I guess it’s as good a reason as any 😉 I really like the use of the brighter brick in the door with the fine steps, as an accent it works very well.

  2. Quite a collection of posh beauties today, Steve. They remind me of doors I’ve seen in Philadelphia, which would makes sense given the British presence there. I love the gates and surrounding stonework of the school but they’re all lovely.
