This week’s Daily Post photographic prompt is a Door. The first door I thought of snapping was the main door at Carlisle Cathedral.
It is currently hidden behind scaffolding covered with large posters, welcoming visitors. I missed the opportunity while there were no people in front of it. After lunch there was a crowd of people taking part in some kind of end of term ceremony. I found a more interesting door-related subject.
Carlisle Cathedral is a red sandstone building.
The sandstone, which has been quarried for centuries in the vicinity of St Bees, is known as St Bees sandstone. By contrast the main door at St Bees Priory is unobstructed. The carved sandstone has been weathered by the prevailing westerly winds since Norman times.
