Lincoln Doors #1


It was like being back in Ludlow. All the beautiful doors of Lincoln’s Cathedral Quarter beckoned. Often wonky, scuffed and peeling paint, elaborate stonework, fancy fanlights or just brightly coloured wooden doors. Each with oodles of character.

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. We are off out to lunch at a Rick Stein’s none the less! Celebrate the anniversary of getting the keys to our new home. How time flies! It’s a bit dull here, but I am hoping the sun may make an appearance.

        2. We have lots of anniversaries! Next one will be 31 March when we actually moved in for real – a year ago we were on blow-up mattresses!

  1. I spent a lot of time in Lincoln when we were house-hunting in the county, some years back.
    It is a very photogenic place, full of history.
    Mint Wall Passage now seems to be blocked by that door. A passage no more…
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  2. They don’t make them like that any longer. Good that you have captured all the beauties! Hope you had a great meal and a smashing evening at Rick Stein’s. 🙂

    1. We went out for lunch Dina as I don’t particularly like driving in the dark and it is very dark around here! Had a lovely meal though the restaurant was practically empty. And a nice walk after to do a bit of photography. All in all a good day.

      1. I know those dark, winding country roads from Norfolk, Jude and I don’t like them either. Even being a passenger, I feel like a bundle of nerves. Always on the watch out for animals, cars and the next curve. Glad you enjoyed your outing. 🙂

  3. I know the attraction to doors, Jude. They always promise entry into a private and mysterious world. These are certainly colorful. I took a lot of pictures of doors in Oman, but I never did a combination post. 🙂
