Notice that many of the doors in these pictures are surrounded by pipes of some kind!

Red seems to be a very popular color here for a door!

And some have tell-all signs and door knockers! This sign says “Dog” and the knocker is a wolf.

    Some absolute beauties this week! So much so that I simply can’t pick a favourite. Thanks for the wonderful tour πŸ˜€

        Elaine I wondered the same thing! All I could find out, for sure, is that there has been a cottage there for 200 years, and once was an artist’s studio. I can see that, because it is at the tippy top of the hill closest to the sea and the light would be excellent! There is a new art museum being built up there now and a new stone 2 story cottage with a large front garden which would be dear to have, except for all the tourists plodding to the new museum! I wonder if Norwegian fisherman once called this their area and brought their families here? There is a Norwegian Street there too and a lovely old grocery shop that might at one time catered to them. I wish I had looked for a History center!

      • Elaine - I used to be indecisive

        I wonder if you might be right about Norwegian fisherman or something (although they would be quite a long way from home when they have good fishing around their own country I would think). Maybe Mr Google will have something to say on the matter. πŸ™‚

      • Elaine - I used to be indecisive

        I just had a quick look at Google and found a little article about street names in St Ives. It says that there is no connection with the country of Norway, but it means north facing – Nor’way. Sounds plausible.

    What a beautiful collection of doors, I love them all. St. Ives is somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. Maybe next year, fingers crossed.

      We had a trying first day (see first posts) but once I adapted to the fact I would spend a lot of time in St Ives, and got around a bit, I LOVED it! Lot’s to see and do and many more posts on it to come! I think you would like it too Jean!

    Nothing like a good stud. πŸ™‚ Hee, hee. I was going to say that second door is stunning…and then there were more and more and more, all lovely. And I love the stone buildings.
