Thursday Doors: More from Mezieres

Back in November I posted images of some of the doors and gates to be found in our local village of Mézières-sur-Issoire. Those two posts by no means exhausted the local possibilities, however, so here are some more from Mézières.

The local economy is still predominantly agriculture-based and the largest open space within the village is not the statutory place de la Republique, but the Marché des Ovins – the sheep market. These first three doors are to be found there:

mezieres-4

mezieres-3

This barn is just down the road from the church; you can’t beat a door within a door:

mezieres-6

Although this one is obviously no longer still in use:

mezieres-5

And finally – just to prove that the village does still have such things – an occupied private house:

mezieres-15

  1. Lovely, i just have a thing about old, collapsing, rustic doors. It seems your area of France will always provide some beautiful examples, thank you for sharing your door world…

  2. I had to smile when I got to that last one, which is quite lovely. But there’s something about that first shot that I really like. That poor, abandoned building is being overrun by the plants!
