Thursday Doors

30-03-17

It really should be Thursday Gates for my contribution to Norm’s excellent Norm 2.0 blog. The weather has been really temperamental in my part of the UK but I managed to gather a few gates on my travels over the last few weeks.

Some Attention Needed

This one belongs to a pub, a good real ale house.

Faded

I liked the colour and the bars above this gate.

I actually took this image 2 years ago, but have been looking for a reason to post it.

Thursday Doors (Gates)

My Jan 12th 2017 Thursday Doors contribution to the excellent Norm 2.0 blog.

The weather here in the UK has been a bit drab & dull so here are a few Doors Gates from the archives.

Bradgate Park

This is a lovely park and I really must get another car so I can visit again. Some of the rocks in the park are among the oldest (Precambrian) in the UK.

Freshly Painted & Fortified

It was the faded blue paint and the red brick that caught my eye.

Nice Topping

I did actually take this photo on Tuesday, it’s in a dark alleyway at the side of the cathedral.

This gate is quite close to where I live, you can only see a bit of the house at the end of the driveway, it’s really grand, probably built in the early 1900’s. The grounds have lots of trees and is quite a wildlife haven amongst the surrounding suburbia.
