Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world. It is hosted by Dan, see his Blog ‘No Facilities‘.
This week, my Thursday Doors are in lovely Lymm.
Lymm is a large village and civil parish in Warrington, Cheshire, England. Its a lovely place about 30 miles from us and where my daughter and her family live.
It’s Celtic translation is a “place of running water”. A stream runs through the village centre from Lymm Dam (an old reservoir) and runs down into a valley underneath the Bridgewater Canal. It’s a popular destination for canal dwellers and tourists as its not only very pretty, but also full of cafes, restaurants and pubs. There is quite a celebrity contingent resident in Lymm including Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, Tim Booth from James and Matthew Corbett from the Sooty Show, and several other TV stars and sports stars.
The first door is the old entrance to the village library, shown here with one of our grandsons posing in front. The library was closed due to lockdown when this was taken but he is so happy now that it has re-opened. I just love the colour of this door and its iron hinges.
This picture is one of the cottages in the village facing the Village duck pond. This was taken in February but the colours are bright and colourful.
This is the row of cottages in summer. The coloured doors look great against the whitewashed frontages.
Here is a beautiful cottage next to the road bridge in the village centre. (Its been photographed zillions of times.) It belongs to Matthew Corbett of ‘The Sooty Show’ fame and is now up for sale.
Finally, just outside Lymm is this stunning pair of early 1900s houses. I love how original and immaculately presented they are and how the garden extends onto the houses. The different coloured front doors and sills make a real but subtle statement.
