Southwold has a fine selection of beach huts on the promenade just above the beach. Decades ago, my wife remembers a family holiday when they rented a hut in Southwold. She recalled the location but not the hut which was occupying it. So here are some huts, plus doors for your delectation.

Southwold is a pretty seaside town in Suffolk. It received a royal charter from King Henry VII in 1489. This post deals with doors in the town, and a subsequent post(s) shows the colourful doors of the beach huts
Lodden is an ancient town in Southeast Norfolk. The name derives from the Celtic term for “muddy river” and the River Chet. This river drains into the Norfolk Broads. Here are a selection of interesting doors.
Two thousand years ago, traders sailed to an island off the coast of Cornwall from the Mediterranean to acquire tin. Then, it was known as Ictis. Following the Norman conquest, the monks of Mont Saint Michel took over the island to train novices at a newly-built priory, and renamed it St Michael’s Mount.
The fortified island can be reached by a causeway at low tide. It was bought after the Civil War by Colonel John St Aubyn, whose descendants still live in the east wing of the castle. In 1954, it was taken over by the National Trust, and partially opened to the public.
St Ives is a popular surfing resort on the north coast of western Cornwall. Normally, it is packed with tourists, but today the weather was unpleasant, windy, raining and dirty grey clouds scudding across the sky. It was deserted in the late afternoon when I visited.
But doors remain. Closed, usually.
