Thursday Doors – In The Village

img_5301I had a little time after work the other day, so decided to photograph a few of the lovely Georgian doors in the village where I work. It’s a small high street, 16th century half-timbered pubs next to Victorian villas and tiny cottages, older timber framed buildings ‘modernised’ with Georgian facades. The village dates back to Saxon times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. In the 12th century it was home to one of the royal Plantagenet palaces, since demolished.

img_5298It’s a lovely place to work, the river running in the valley below next to the more placid waters of the old canal. I’ve seen a kingfisher, flash of brilliant blue, along the river, and at the moment there are snowdrops on the banks – it’s nice to have the option to walk to work, too.

      1. I would imagine so. Me, I’d probably have gone for his mirrors with a can of black paint…they are awful to drive behind with the sun at your back 😉

      2. Haha, the mental picture of that is quite amusing, Sue! Although I totally see your point, as well. I imagine all those lights would be quite bright at night, too.

  1. Some lovely doors indeed. I saw this fellow on your Instagram too – glad you managed to work him into a post. I bet he’s quite a conversation-starter wherever he goes 😀
