Thursday Doors – Castle Saunderson Again

This week’s Thursday Doors finds me back at Castle Saunderson again. It’s a great place for foraging and I wanted to get some meadowsweet to make a cordial. I couldn’t resist photographing the castle from a couple of new angles while I was there.

Let’s have a closer look at some windows. I can see shutters in one and the remains of an old ceiling in the other.

The arches in the center of this old wall seem to be on top of each other. Maybe a large one was made smaller for some reason. There’s a lot going on in this section of the boundary wall, between the bricks and stones. The walk back to the car was lovely, as always.

Hopefully I’ll find some edible mushrooms later in the year on one of my walks here. Thanks for stopping by and if you’d like to see some Thursday Doors from around the globe, have a look at Norm’s blog.

    Beautiful photos. I like the contrast of the old stones with the clear blue sky. Most refreshing to see.

    Beautiful shots Jean. With those massive stone walls, towers and turrets, I can almost imagine how imposing this place must have been when it was in its prime.

    The photo of the wall where only one door remains yet the ghost doors are still visible is intriguing. And why so high the one door? Are you below an upper level not seen on the other side of the wall? A still pretty castle holding her own in her older years!

    • It is definitely a lower level on that side of the castle grounds. I wonder if those archways originally led to an underground prison/storage area. I would so love to see inside those walls.
