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 nolen

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.

    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!
