Doors- Gate Door in Rye

prison door by susan sheldon nolen

On the way to Simon the Pie Man in Rye, I made a wonderful discovery-a little side gate door! The middle board has been reused to make this old wood door. It reads, This Oak Plank Originally Formed A Part of a 14th Century Prison Door. What a great salvage! The upside down good luck  horseshoe looks just as old!

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.

    very cool photo – and this sounds like the title of a poem or short story – “Simon the Pie Man in Rye”

    • Thanks Prior, It was a lovely little sandwich tea shop! We got there just in time for a pot of tea before closing hour! Phew!

        well a reblog on the door blog would share it with even more – so can I reblog?

        also, I love to make it in time like that – and it looks like an interesting place –

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
