Had a problem today uploading files onto WordPress, so possibly a bit late with this post for Norm’s Thursday Doors Challenge .
Whenever we go in to town we like to park the car down by the river and walk up through the old part of the town centre. (I say town, though Preston is now officially a city). It’s only a 10 minute walk, or an hour if you wander taking time to appreciate what’s there.
This old part of Preston was very grand, housing rich merchants and their families, at the time of the Industrial Revolution. Now its buildings are used in a variety of ways: some are architects’ or lawyers’ offices, some are student flats, some are bedsits, some are family homes. The glorious thing about this area is that the external architecture hasn’t been changed and so the doors are, in the main, original. (First door shown is clearly NOT an original, though I had to smile at the attempt to make it look Ye Olde English with its elaborate hinges). It looks like its had a bit of a kicking too.
They come in all colours, but more of that in a future post. Today I’m posting yellow doors.
