After the little detour to Bordeaux over the past few weeks, we’re back at the gift that keeps on giving of old doors in Confolens. The next few posts will all feature doors to be found on the left bank (rive gauche) of the Vienne river, which flows through the town and gave it its old strategic importance.
To get from one side to t’other, you can always drive over the newer bridge, but on a nice day it’s much more pleasant to stroll over the pedestrianised Pont Vieux.
And this is what you’ll find in the way of interesting doors, beginning with a church:
And something that looks like a church but isn’t:
Not all doors are quite so spectacular, of course:
A little more modern is this example, with some interesting ironwork:
Most prosaic of all is this, actually an electricity sub-station:

Lovely set of doors
these are doors with a lot of character.. nice
Love the white door.
Lots of texture and character in these shots. I really love the reflections in the bridge shot as well. Nicely done 🙂
Great doors and I love that first shot of the bridge.
Beautiful bridge! Which river does it cross? The doors are noteworthy and old! Perfect for Thurs. Doors:)
Thank you. It is a very pretty bridge and it crosses the River Vienne, which runs north from a plateau in the southern part of the Limousin region, eventually flowing into the Loire river and ultimately into the Atlantic. It’s about 260 miles long and probably goes through most of the local ‘administrative centre’ towns around where we live.
Superb set of doors.
Door #2 caught my attention! Well done!
