Doors 159 – Lyme Regis part 4

So to the final selection of doors from a visit to Lyme Regis in July, when England was bathed in sunshine, and we enjoyed the only real taste of summer this year. I have had fun sharing doors from this trip, and it has been a bit different from the more usual fare of Bristol and graffiti doors. There is more good news too, which is that I managed to capture a few doors in Cornwall while I was there last week, so that should keep me going for a little while.

Here are this week’s doors – enjoy:

Doors 158 – Lyme Regis part 3

Little by way of introduction from me today as I am on holiday in Cornwall (taking lots of new door pictures to keep me going for a while). Instead, I’ll let you browse at your leisure through this third instalment of doors from a trip to Lyme Regis about a month ago. Enjoy.

Thursday doors – 12 August 2021

Doors 157 – Lyme Regis part 2

I have written this week’s post in advance, because my mind will be otherwise occupied today preparing for a short break from work. Talking of breaks, this is the second post of Thursday doors from a mini-break my wife, daughter, dog and I shared in July during the short heatwave that (at the time of writing) seems a lifetime ago.

Lyme Regis is a curious town trying to satisfy a dual personality as a fine destination at the heart of the famous Jurassic Coast, and a rather overcrowded south coast beach opportunity for grockles. Much of the town appears to be geared towards the latter and their desires for fish and chips and ice cream. Step back into the past, and the doors tell you much more about the history of the place.

Here we go:

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.
