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.

Thursday doors – 11 November 2021

Doors 168 – Looe doors, Cornwall – Part 2

Continuing with my second set of doors from a recent fishing trip to Looe in Cornwall.

My first impressions of Looe, formed a few years ago at the height of grockle (tourist)  season, were not entirely good. Very crowded and if I am honest it all felt a bit naff. However, this October, my views were turned upside down, and I felt some affection for the place. The absence of hoards of holidaymakers meant that you could actually appreciate the town, it’s streets and buildings… and doors. So here are some more doors for you to enjoy:

One more week of these Cornish doors and then… I’m not too sure what, probably some archive doors from Bristol.

Today is Remembrance Day, so I dedicate this post to the fallen. I will not forget.

Thursday doors – 4 November 2021

Doors 167 – Looe doors (see what I did there?), Cornwall – Part 1

Good morning doorsters. This week, I am returning to Cornwall for some doors I photographed during a sea fishing pilgrimage I make with a great friend every year. We spent a day fishing on the ‘banjo’ pier in the seaside town of Looe, and of course I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a few door snaps while we were there. No fish were killed in the making of this blog post, all were returned to the sea carefully.

So here are the doors, and one or two fishing pictures to get you in the mood:
