Thursday Doors Victoria Park Road

Victoria Park used to be a race course in the centre of Leicester. When the horse races shifted south to Oadby, Victoria Park became a … park. These crumbling Victorian villas are situated on the southern edge of the park.

Some fine decoration on the arch around the door
With plain stone surround, stained glass inserts, coach lights and a red door
The lead protection over the ornate brickwork is falling down
You get a glimpse of the tiled mosaic floor of the hallway
Seen better days
So has the car parked outside, which hasn’t moved for months
Finally, Montello, a fine front portico

These are wonderful doors. They deserve a little maintenance and repair, but they are all part of wonderful entrances. I find the first two very interesting. Different looks, but the same style. Even the door that you correctly note has “seen better days” is a beautiful entrance. I hope these doors find themselves under better care before time renders them too far gone.

Thanks for sharing these.
