Sunday Post: Door

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

  2. I promise!! I won’t tease you anymore about not being organized. Pleaseeeee don’t put me in there!!!! LOL

    The prisons and dungeons of the past were definitely not a place I would have wanted to inhabit. Shows how far society has changed.

  4. 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.

    I love your door, possibly where Bilco came up with their line of basement entry doors. Super entry for the theme in question. 🙂

    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

    • TBM says:

      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.

  14. I want my last hours to be in sleep.

    I thought it was a beer hatch for rolling the barrels down, at first sight. I guess not, huh?

  16. Fergiemoto says:

    Great one for the challenge! It might be ok to visit for a few minutes, but I wouldn’t want to stay!
