Nice. This door has wonderful character, and the image is almost tactile in nature due to the many textures at play.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Red Pen. I couldn't agree more

It is a very fine door, and surrounds, Bill.
Well spotted.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ray. It needs a bit of wood filler at the bottomgrin

This looks like a door that has many stories attached to it. What is behind it? The dungeon?
Bill Phillips: LOL! Probably the tradesman's entrance

Donica is always doing that to me, Bill...finding things I don't see until she points them out to me. You can thank Angela for us.
Bill Phillips: It's useful having a spotter! Thanks Ginnie
I agree with you, like the different textures, and how worn is that step.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Nig. There's a few feet passed over that step!

I wonder what lies beyond?? I would love to see.! That's because I like to nose around, must be the Gemini in mesmile
Thank you Angela, oh yes and you Bill for taking the shotsmile
Bill Phillips: Another Gemini eh? I also had a mother from Lancashire so I am even nosier!
Oh I do! Look how worn the step is: and how the brickwork is weathered more on one side than another
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Sir Tiff. I love the colour of the bricks.

Looks like a well worn step. Well spotted by Angela and captured by you.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Aussie. My Ange is a good photo spotter!
This would certainly be of interest to wanderingalan, Bill, who is currently posting a series of entrances (Including the one to my house!)
Bill Phillips: Your front door is a bit posh Sir Chadwick.
they certainly had a lot of visitors creeping in through that little side door Bill ... it sort of makes you think what might have been going on.
Bill Phillips: Only you would think of that! How's the weather in Suffolk?

Lovely door - I too have a photo of it somewhere in the depths of my archive. Lots of lovely textures to feast the eyes on here.
Bill Phillips: It just begs to be photographed. I went for the Richard Standley full on symmetrical take...wonder what you did?

Bill Phillips: Thanks Chantal, that was the intention.

Yes it colours and texture are super it's good to have a spotter.
Bill Phillips: Very useful and she is very patient!
Oh, I do and I like how the stone threshold has been worn.
Bill Phillips: There's a few pairs of feet been across it, and a few stories to tell!
Great image Bill. Lovely textures and colours and that door needed to be photographed.
Bill Phillips: I agree! I'm not the first and won't be the last though!

This would definitely have attracted my attention Bill, such beautiful colours and textures as you say.

The wood is amazing
Bill Phillips: There is no substitute for weathering!...wish that applied to peoplegrin

Angela has a good eye like you (na, no wonder after 37 years living together)! I very like the composition and the colours of your pic and -especially- this mysterious, rather 'aristocratic' door with the nice iron fittings and the beautiful keystone above the entrance and the worn step and the weathered stones! I think it can tell some stories and I would like to know more about this door. Doors are always fascinating for me!
Bill Phillips: This door is at the bottom of the round tower on the right side of the building. I think it might have been used by servants or possibly a tradesman's entrance, but I don't know

Great door find by Angela. I have been fascinated by doors for many reasons for several years.

Like this one very much.

Bill Phillips: Glad you like this one Alan. Worth a wander up this way!
Great door Bill, everything so old, particularly the step, I bet you would really like to go behind it just to find out what is there.
Bill Phillips: Of course Brian. I'm a nosey old sod!
Just catching up on the last few days. Looks like you found another great place to visit and photograph. Love this door and all the different textures surrounding it. (:o)
Bill Phillips: Well worth a visit Roz.

Looks stong and sturdy...can'tbreak into that one. Angela has a good eye.
Bill Phillips: She's very good, and patient while I fiddle about taking far too many pictures of the same thing!

Lovely detail shot, Bill.. good having seen the bigger view previously to put this into context. I like the combination of the wood, stone and brick.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Alan, I agree it is one for a series.

Definitely worth taking a picture. And yes I am enjoying - thumbs up for Angela for spotting it and having the sense to draw you over by your ear.
Bill Phillips: Don't give her ideas! I like my ears as they are
A fine mix of textures and colours Bill. Well seen.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Les
