Door- A castle door to pass the dead?


I almost missed this little door. It’s square and off the ground a bit. The only thing really standing out about it was the blue hinges, otherwise it was perfectly camouflaged in the castle’s stone works.  I stopped and wondered its original use, to pass supplies in or out? It’s a work door of sorts, not for people to pass through, unless it is a door to pass the dead out of the castle. I didn’t get a chance to find out, and if there are any castle’s buff’s out there, I’d love to hear your suggestion.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Hopefully it wasn’t a spot to dump the chamber pots. That would make for a stinky castle corner. 😉

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
