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.

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real 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!
