Thursday Doors – The Church of St Mary The Virgin


As you walk around this world, gazing toward stunning and sometimes unusual buildings, are your eyes drawn to doors?  Personally mine are, admiring their various shapes, colours and designs, but I mainly think about the people who have wandered through them in the past.  There are many types of doors.  Do they make you inquisitive enough to ask yourself, what is behind them? Will you open and go through if you can, or just peek through the key hole?

Thursday Doors is a weekly photography challenge for door lovers run by Norm at his blog Norm 2.0.  I thought I would join in, you can too, visit Norm 2.0 here for more information.

IMG_3502My Contribution to Thursday Doors this week is from ‘The Church of St Mary the Virgin’.  

We came across this beautiful little church as myself and Jon were enjoying the grounds of Studley Royal Estate last summer.  As we were wandering the countryside, this gorgeous church seemed to pop out at us, with of course its stunning doors.







After staring at the ornate doors above, we came across this very small and slim one, below, tucked around the back of the building.  A strange shape and size, I’d love to know who this door was for.  I couldn’t find any reference to it in the information on the website, but I’m guessing it was for the clergy.


I hope you enjoyed my contribution to Thursday Doors
