Thursday Doors in Norfolk

Loddon is a picturesque village on the edge of the Norfolk Broads. It has expanded to the north across the River Chet to merge with another village, Chedgrave. Last weekend, I took some photographs of All Saints Church. A Christian community has been meeting in this medieval church for over a thousand years.

The porch has been added recently. Note the flint stones.
Inside the porch, there is a door to the church. The decorative surround original, but the door has been replaced.
Detail of the door: MD = 1500, CCC = 300, XIX = 29 giving a grand total of 1829
Inside the church – colourful kneelers and stained glass behind the altar
The weathered inscription on the gravestone is illegible, behind the teazels.

Walking back to the village, I noticed a tanning salon.

Leveche is a warm south-westerly wind which affects SE Spain in the summer. I wonder if clients leave the shop looking the same colour as the orange panels.

Norfolk is noted for the quirkiness of its inhabitants. “Normal for Norfolk” is a phrase sometimes used. I am not sure what to make of this picture of a man on a motorcycle wearing a rooster outfit.

But there is a bit of a door in the background…

Thursday Doors Pun

Those of you who read the text accompanying my photographs of doors will know that I enjoy making puns. This is a brilliant name for a restaurant, unfortunately closed by covid restrictions, in Leicester Cultural Quarter.

Nineteen – gale, geddit?
