Thursday Doors: Beverley Revisited

Apologies for the recent hiatus in door posts, but the fact of the matter is that I had just run out of doors worthy of your consideration and so far this year have had neither the opportunity nor the suitable weather to find any new ones.

However, we recently visited our daughter and family who live near the town of Beverley in East Yorkshire and I managed to capture with my iPhone these few examples of the typical Georgian style. They’re rather better looked after than those I tend to put up here, but interesting nonetheless.

I’ll be back when I’ve got some more to share.

Note the decorative pair of wellington boots next to this door:

Thursday Doors: Beverley (again)

After last week’s little tour of the village of Cherry Burton, we are back in the nearby market town of Beverley again for a few more interesting doors.

And none more interesting than this – North Bar, the last remaining of the medieval gates to the walled town. To give an idea of scale, you could easily step through that door within a door. Of course, they don’t close it at nights anymore. Just as well: the implications for traffic would be horrendous.

Just outside the North Bar there are a number of very grand old houses, with equally grand doors:

The Railway Station, Beverley

The railway station at Beverley, in East Yorkshire, retains much of its original, Victorian architectural features. A view from the level crossing on a quiet Sunday morning gives a slightly different perspective from the one travellers usually see.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

WordPress wants to see some images of sunrises and/or sunsets for their latest Weekly Photo Challenge.

I don’t have many sunrises, probably because that would involve getting up early. However, in the past I have posted a few sunsets (all the decent ones, it seems) under various threads, so here is a little compendium of a few of the better examples, beginning with the same view that I put up in response to last week’s ‘Favourite Place’ challenge:

More exotically, this was taken on a sunset cruise off Muscat, in Oman:

and this one in the game reserve on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi – the giraffe enclosure, to be exact:

This, though, is probably the most spectacular sunset I’ve ever captured – just outside Beverley, in East Yorkshire:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Decay

For Frank’s theme for this week of ‘decay’, here is an image of part of the heavily-weathered inscription on a gravestone to be found in the old burial ground opposite St Mary’s church in Beverley, Yorkshire.

Time and the elements have worn down the lettering into something almost abstract, although it is still possible to make out some of the wording.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow

Although I’ve had to raid my existing¬†WordPress media library for this week’s challenge (as I currently do not have access to all my images), I think that this sunset over Beverley, in East Yorkshire, not only meets the theme of ‘Glow’ but is worth seeing again.

The Nave

Cee’s theme this week is ‘Internal Walkways’. I hope that the aisle of a church counts – in this case, that of St Mary’s in Beverley, Yorkshire.
