Thursday Doors: FriendDoors, Guildhall in Leicester

My British friend, fellow writer Andrea Gilbey, sent me these door pictures from one of her “rambles”. As the title says, they’re from the Guildhall in Leicester.

First, an informational plaque, because she knows how I am.

The dates say 1343, 1547, 1563, 1876

A closeup of the plaque:

Here’s the interior:

And some doors:

And say hello to my little friend:

Thanks, Andrea!

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A place is reopened.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      She’s one of many of my daughters from another pair of parents … That doesn’t have a catchy ring to it, somehow.
