Each week Jake proposes a theme for creative inspiration. You can post your interpretation to the theme on your blog anytime before the following Sunday. Remember to post your link in the comments section.
Many people who follow my blog know I love a good challenge. When I see a door, I want to know what is behind it and what opportunity waits. However, this isn’t always true. While visiting Warwick Castle last week I found a door that I didn’t want to explore. Well that’s not true. But if I wasn’t a tourist and it was several hundred of years ago, I would not want to venture past this door.
This is what you’ll find inside. It doesn’t look like a comfortable place to spend your last hours.

This for this. I visited the castle many years ago. It was unfortunately very soon after a knee injury and I could not go into all the nooks and up all the stairs
I’m sorry to hear about your knee. I have a bad knee so I can relate…stairs can be so unkind.
I promise!! I won’t tease you anymore about not being organized. Pleaseeeee don’t put me in there!!!! LOL
By the way, I think that was a perfect choice for that challenge – very unique. Great photos!!
Thanks! And thanks for the idea of having a place for the super-organized…I like it!
The prisons and dungeons of the past were definitely not a place I would have wanted to inhabit. Shows how far society has changed.
These places and old mental institutions really make cringe.
Castles are so full of weird stuff! I remember years ago I went to Hever Castle and there was a pairs of Henry the 8ths boots there (armored ones) and you could have fit a small pet shop in them.
They are fun to explore. I’ll have to check out Hever Castle. Thanks for the idea!
Thanks for the surprise ending!
You’ve been warned.
Doesn’t look fun.
I’m thinking it wasn’t a pleasant ending.
Definitely not a place I want to spend time 😉
And it was really dark and cold.
I can imagine *shudder*
Great work for this week theme my friend thanks for sharing this photo and article 🙂
I love your door, possibly where Bilco came up with their line of basement entry doors. Super entry for the theme in question. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Very clever indeed! Isn´t Warwick Castle a beautiful place?!
It really is…and it was so green from all of the rain.
Excellent entry 🙂
What a door… But it is amazing castle I wish to visit too. Thank you dear TBM, love, nia
I’m hoping to posts more photos next week Nia.
We went last year I did do a post on my blog about it I totally agree with you about the goal. I think facing the thouht of imprisonment in there i would have made a break for it and flung myself from the castle walls
The goal was super creepy and I didn’t have many happy thoughts there. Your idea seems like a logical solution, if you can get away.
I want my last hours to be in sleep.
Sleep and no pain sound good to me.
I thought it was a beer hatch for rolling the barrels down, at first sight. I guess not, huh?
Great one for the challenge! It might be ok to visit for a few minutes, but I wouldn’t want to stay!
I love seeing your new place through your eyes TBM. 🙂
