Northumberland Thursday Doors

Thursday doors Berwick7

Being an important port, Berwick has its own Custom House.

Has the portico shrunk over the years? Rather wonky.

I confess my ignorance about the painter who lived at this spot. Normally there is a blue plaque. But in keeping with the pastel colour scheme, this plaque is puce.

A bit of a bruiser door, bearing wounds
Why is this called “…..House”? I wonder if the pane of glass with gold lettering was broken, so the owners replaced it with a plain pane. Purple gardening boots, great.
Gate House is beneath …… House
Bright blue door seems out of keeping with the rest of the street
One door, three dwellings. One grate.

These are lovely doors. I think you’re right about the missing pane. I like the Custom House the best, but the one at #17 is also very nice. I’d be happy to come home to any one of them.
