Life Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors in Colour

With the current lockdown, Tier 4 covid restrictions, there haven’t been many opportunities to take photographs. Here are a few colourful doors from Leicester city centre

And another, less impressive, but leonine, none the less.

Being a “detectorist” is a popular hobby in the UK. This involves using a metal detector to discover metal objects – Roman coins to tin cans. In Leicester, there is a similar fad using a magnet to “fish” for metal objects in the canal or River Soar. Occasionally, the magnet fishers will find armaments from World War 2, such as grenades. There used to be a stash of munitions north of the city, but no one knows how these fell/were dumped into the river. Usually, the magnet fishers just pull out scrap metal.
