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.

That is a lot of yellow doors! Beautiful. I would’ve never thought of painting my door yellow.

I love yellow doors. These are fabulous.
Just letting you know that I can’t comment on your posts from the Reader.

    Thanks for comment. I don’t know if the comment button ever came up. I’ll go back and check. My site not hosted by WordPress so that might be why. Hmmm…another challenge. Have a good week.

      Yes I wonders if that might be why. I did try opening in a browser but still no comment section…

        Oh I’ll need to investigate this! Thanks for letting me know. Much of all this is a mystery to me. It’s fine when it all works but I’m stumped sometimes when it doesn’t.

          No worries. I’ll check on a computer soon.

          Thanks that would be good cos checking my own site doesn’t alway show what others can see.
