Thursday Doors – Ecclesiastical Doors

I had to dig into my archives to find some doors to post on “Thursday Doors” over at the excellent Norm 2.0 blog. The weather and light have been dull and grey here in Leicester.

Tall & Slim

You would need to be tall & slim to fit through this door at All Saints Church, Braunston, Rutland. This photo was taken on my Olympus 35DC film camera.

Sacristy Door

These are both from Ely Cathedral Cambridgeshire.

If you look carefully at the two doors above, letters and numbers have been chalked on them, I have no idea what if anything they refer to. These were taken on 10th Jan this year one of the few bright days we have had.

Chartres Cathedral, France 2008

Chartres Cathedral is a magnificent building, and Chartres was a great overnight stop on my way back from my friends in Aquitaine.

*Sorry about the large size of some of these images, but it was before I got the sizing right for WordPress posts.

      Thank you Alexandra, yes but only a side door. I have put weight on over Christmas time and probably wouldn’t fit through it now lol. There were new chalk writings there when I went past today. :>)
