I’m cheating slightly with my Thursday Doors post this week. The entrance door of my subject building – a long-since abandoned village shop – is certainly old and nicely weatherworn but it’s the doors to the cellar which really caught my eye. These small doors which give a very limited access from the street to the cellar beneath the shop, are made of iron with beautiful patterns cut into the panels. The textures are beautiful, a mix of faded colours and peeling paint and rust.
I think the shop must have been a rather smart establishment in its heyday. The shutters cover a long stretch of display windows and the building is well located near the top of the hill towards the old château in the village. I must do a little research to discover what was sold here and what may have been stored beneath the shop…………..
