My choice of image this week for Norm’s Thursday Doors is the entrance to this cottage in the village of Scorton in The Forest of Bowland, Lancashire, England.

Scorton meaning ‘farmstead near a ditch or ravine’ is a village in the parish of Nether Wyresdale, along the road from Garstang. It was developed around the cotton mill and railway in the nineteenth century, although there are records of the village and catholic church in Scurton, or Scorton, tracing back to the 17C. –Welcome to Scorton Website

I love the picture. I followed your link to Norm’s page and am now “Following” Norm. Perhaps I can add a few nice door pictures over the next few weeks.

Such a lovely cottage door. And look at all that rambling plant growing over it, it will be very hidden when the leaves come out!

    Thanks for comment, Georgie. Yes they’ll need a machete later in the summer .

Another pretty cottage I would not mind living in. Unless it is in one of those deserted villages, but it looks like people are living here.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
