This week I have only a single photograph for Thursday Doors but it’s an all in one image. A friend of one of my sisters sent me this great shot of a door that has so much I like in it – an arch, a stone wall, a red door and even some wild flowers. So a big thank you to Rose Moore for your lovely contribution this week.
The photograph was taken in Belvoir Estate, County Clare, which is a Gothic Revival structure built around 1820.
Belvoir was an early 19th century house on the same site as an earlier building. It was the home of the Wilson family, valued at £32 in the mid 19th century. The house was burnt in 1888 when leased by the Wilson Lynches to Lady Loftus. It was not rebuilt though recorded as the seat of Maj. Wilson Lynch in 1894. Members of the Wilson Lynch family continued to live in the remaining wing until the mid 20th century. It is now a ruin. *
As always, thanks a million for stopping by the blog this week and if you’d like to see more Thursday Doors from around the world, carry on over to Norm’s blog.
