Doors 91 – Llangorse Lake, Wales

Last weekend we made a trip across the Severn Estuary to see some friends who recently moved to Wales. This was our first visit, and I am sure not our last. After lunch we went for a walk along the southern bank of Llangorse Lake and, of course, I managed to turn the whole thing into a bit of a doorscursion. I hope you enjoy these doors as much as I did.

Next week I will probably do a round up of my favourite doors of 2019, but until then, I wish you all a fabulous week.

Doors 90 – Bristol doors on a Harbourside walk

Another quick one this week. A selection of doors photographed during a lunchtime walk a week or two ago. The Harbourside area is made up of a mixture of old warehouses, boat yards, Victorian residences and rather expensive new builds. It is a fascinating area and just to make it extra good, you are only ever a stone’s throw away from the water.

Here we go…

Doors 89 – Fowey, Cornwall (part 5)

Looking back to September when the weather was just lovely and I managed to capture a few more doors from the beautiful cornish village (town) of Fowey. Fewer words this week – enjoy the doors.

Doors 88 – Cheltenham doors (Part 1)

At the end of September I went to visit Cheltenham, not too far from Bristol, for the Cheltenham Paint Festival, something I have wanted to do for a year or two now.

Never one to waste a bit of a doorscursion, I managed to snap a few doors while wandering around the town looking for street art spots. I actually went twice and over the two days walked more than 30 kilometers, mainly because I am not at all familiar with the town and also because unlike at Upfest (Bristol’s street art festival) the art is really spread out in all corners of Cheltenham. This meant I got to see quite a wir=de selection of doors.

This first post is just a random selection and I’m not sure I could remember where any of these actually were, but you can forgive me I hope, my mind was on other things:

When is a door not a door...? Cheltenham, September 2019

Door 87 – Wareham, Dorset

When I first started doing Thursday Doors, I used to post only one door at a time but slowly over time I got sucked into adding more and more doors each week, so just to give me a bit of breathing space it is a one door treat (trick or treat) this week.

I recently had a meeting in Wareham, Dorset and as always on these trips I had my camera at the ready just in case a door opportunity offered itself. Well I got lucky with this one. A most unusual door with both charming and less charming features. Definitely a curiosity.

Old red door, Wareham, Dorset, October 2019

I did a little Google search using the words ‘Wareham High Street Door’ and found a little bit of information about the building the door belongs to. It is a rented accomodation and here are the rental details:

£795 pcm (£183 pw)

North Street, Wareham BH20

Maisonette to rent – 2 bedrooms

Available immediately

Grade II listed maisonette with many period features including original shutters and large sash windows, ideally located in the popular market town of Wareham and with the benefit of a new modern shower room and newly renovated kitchen.

I see a red door and I want it painted black.

That’s all this week. Short and sweet.

Happy Halloween!

Doors 86 – City of Westminster

Occasionally I have to travel to Westminster for work and the tedium of getting to London and navigating the crowds is offset somewhat by the architecture. Last week I managed to snap a few doors that I have been meaning to photograph for a while. Here they are. Plenty more where these came from so they might not be the last. These ones were all very close to Westminster School, if that means anything to you.

So here goes:

Doors 85 – Fowey, Cornwall (part4)

(Originally published by mistake on Wednesday 9 October… d’oh!)

Wow! A Thursday doors on a Wednesday… how on earth did I manage that? Obviously I am not firing on all cylinders yet.

This week I am continuing with some Cornish doors from a trip to Fowey back in September and in doing so clinging on to what was the last of the decent late Summer weather – now it just rains… every day.

So here they are – dreaming of holidays by the sea.

Still more doors to come from Fowey, but you’ll have to wait for them. In the meantime enjoy what’s left of the week and have a lovely weekend.
