Thursday Doors: Harrogate, North Yorkshire, UK

A few weeks ago I was supposed to be in……..

Harrogate, a spa town in North Yorkshire, England. The town became known as ‘The English Spa’ in the Georgian era, after its waters were discovered in the 16th century. In the 17th and 18th centuries its ‘chalybeate’ waters (containing iron) were a popular health treatment, and the influx of wealthy, but sickly visitors, contributed significantly to the wealth of the town. I probably should have gone; the spa treatments would have done me good. But, because I was not feeling up to it, my husband who had business there, was encouraged to take a doorscursion for me. Here are the results of his efforts! Pretty good I’d say! Especially, since he had to go after work hours, in the dark, and in rain or snow every evening! How nice to enjoy Harrogate today in the snow as he did!! What a lovely place! First we’ll look at the blue doors.

Do you see all the wrought iron and heavy metal drainpipes in most of these photos? They are artwork in themselves!

I’d definitely say black doors were the most popular!

Isn’t this the cutest menswear shop store front?

And the other reason I hated to miss this trip, was I wanted to go to the Swan Hotel! What’s at the Swan Hotel you ask? We’ll discover that tomorrow!  See you there!

This is just one of many photos in the Thursday Door Collection featured by Norm2.0!   Won’t you join in or take a peak at all the doors?

        Oh no! Poor you! Hey, you take care of yourself and get your husband to do everything for you. Hope you are up and about again soon xx

    What a lovely gallery! Your husband did a stellar job. I love the blue doors, but they all have appeal and beauty. I’m familiar with Harrogate from Taylors of Harrogate and their tea, but I’ve unfortunately never been there.

    Are snowflakes beginning to fall in Yorkshire? Oh, this makes me so homesick. We lived in Ripon (only a few minutes outside of Harrogate) for some years. We’re in Florida now, and it’s absolutely balmy heading into the holiday season. This seems so wrong to me!

    Congrats to Hubby for doing an exceptional job. So many wonderful shots in this collection. The neighbouring black and white doors is my favourite shot.
