Thursday Doors on New Walk 3

The Belmont Hotel is situated on New Walk where it meets De Montfort Square. The building used to be the home of Ernest Gimson, described by the art critic Nikolaus Pevsner as “the greatest of the English architect-designers” (according to Wikipedia). Through the dining room window, you can see a table set for afternoon tea. Hopefully we will be able to eat at restaurants soon.

The next few houses are neighbours, from 104 to

This door is slightly different, a modern attachment to the main house.

Across the bridge over Waterloo Way, the houses change character. I like the wrought iron work on the first floor balconies.

This house seems out of character, detached from the rest of the street, with a fine lawn.
This beautiful window is part of a residential home for older people. The New Walk Museum is on the other side of the walk.
Very Georgian, with classical design on the edge of the roof.

More New Walk Doors next week.

I find it interesting that the bricks in the arches above the first set of doors are actually tapered (at least they appear to be). In any case, those are wonderful entrances. I do like the iron balconies, with the little roofs. The bay window is beautiful. All in all, a fine group today. I hope you will share one next week for the writing challenge.
