blaydon wall

By greensurfingbear
I must walk past these old doors in the yards of the surround houses every single day. Many in better nick than this one. I really like the fact that they are painted in bright colours, it makes them stand out from the red brick work. This one took my eye because of the texture. half tempted to wander the streets of Blaydon and snap as many of them as I can. Maybe have a mini door theme......

This, if I'm not mistaken, is a coal hole. There are a few left a bit further West along the Tyne Valley where I live, and I've been eyeing them up, wondering if they were worth a shot. You got there first, fair enough. Good picture, with around 150 (say) years history trailing behind it.
I think I'm going to try a shot of some netties though.

Not always easy to discern from their 21st-century appearence, but I believe that communal bread ovens also looked similar. They were certainly located in walls! Thanks for posting this, which is a bit more colourful than those I'm used to seeing.

What do you say after two woolybills? It's a great image with wonderful texture - coal/bread - well nearly the same!
