4 May: A Thursday Door

This photo is the entrance to Reigate Fort (in Surrey, UK) that was built in 1898, one of 13 forts that ran along the 72-mile defence line between the North Downs and Essex, built to protect London from an attack by the French. Reigate Fort was used as a mobilisation centre, storing vital tools and ammunition to supply soldiers and artillery at short notice.  

Bushboy (Brian Dodd) shares photos of doors, but not just any doors. Spectacular doors from his journeys. Dan’s Thursday Doors opened the door on this. I love doors of all sorts. I’ve trawled through my holiday snaps and found a few to share.

    1. We walked up there a lot during Covid lockdown, and the air was so clear and free of pollution that we could see all the way to London. It was amazing. Thank you so much for posting your link. It makes finding you easy.
