Gorgeous Gothic Doors

I  love doors, especially old, intricately carved, mysterious doors. Don't you just want to open them and see what magical world waits on the other side?

This blue door is at the front entrance of St. Paul's Church in Astley Bridge, Bolton. It is a lovely Anglican church. I've actually been through this door.  Inside it is one big room. Cold. Dark. Stone. Vaulted ceiling. Stained glass. Beautiful.

This door is in Rochester. We found it on our way from the castle to the High Street where we were going to meet some friends for lunch. No idea what is on the other side. Can't even tell you the name of the building. We were cutting through side streets and--there it was! Only had time to snap a photo and then be on our way.

What do you think? Do you like doors?



  1. Deb,
    I love your doors... but where are the pics of the stained glass windows that I am dying to see!!! LOL! Oh, and by the way, the land of fairies, castles, and cars on the wrong side of the road sounds like the perfect place for you. Are you kidding me? I miss you my beautiful friend. I miss the fun and laughter we always shared. I still hope to be coming your way in the next couple of years, so plan on a visit. Love you. Susanne

  2. Suzie! Glad you like the pix. I have photos of the stained glass windows in Dover Castle. I'll have to dig those out and post for you. Miss you, too. Hey, just let me know when you're going to be here. Would love to catch up. Hugs!!!
