Continuing our Thursday Doors tour of Ballycastle, County Antrim, we leave the harbour area and head up to the main part of town. On the way there’s a nice red post box but that’s not the only thing that caught my eye. I can see two local characters having a chat on one of the side streets.
My daughter told me she often sees these two hens scratching around the bottom of this hedge. Apparently, they live in a garden on the opposite side of the street.
At least we know why these two chickens crossed the road – obviously better pickings on that side of the street.
The steps lead up to the Masonic Hall, a late nineteenth century building. It’s on an elevated site close to the town centre and is a Grade B2 listed building in the Neo Classical style.
The next building has a hint of a ship about it with those porthole windows at the top.
I love all those dormer windows that can be seen around this part of town. They really give a lot of character to the place, as does the mix of colourful facades.
I hope you enjoyed our virtual tour this week. There is a lot more to come over the next couple of weeks from the town of Ballycastle but in the meantime, Dan has a great selection of Thursday Doors waiting for you over on his blog.
