Welcome to Thursday Doors during lockdown. Thankfully, here in Ireland we are allowed take a walk every day to get some exercise and fresh air, as long as it’s not more than two kilometres from our homes. It’s so nice to have Turbet Island and the River Erne on our doorstep and I thought it would be good to include a photograph of these lovely natural amenities in my post this week.
There were signs of Spring everywhere with lots of primroses in full bloom.
I don’t know the history of this old rectory but I’ve been meaning to take a photograph of it since we moved here. It’s impossible to get close because it’s on private land, so I had to zoom in. Sorry it’s not a very clear image. The attached building seems to have a large arched entrance.
I found an old postcard online of what the rectory used to look like in its day.
There’s an interesting piece of machinery set as a feature along the river bank, you might know what it was for but I haven’t a clue.
On my way back home through the town I captured some lovely red doors and a wonderful brick archway.
By the time I arrived home I was ready for a nice cup of coffee in the back garden, which we’ve been clearing of renovation rubble bit by bit. Thanks for stopping by this week. For more Thursday Doors why not carry on over to Norm’s blog, I think he’s on lockdown, too.
