Where Does The Door From 1336 Lead To?

It’s an innocent looking door, isn’t it?

According to the sign, nearly 700 years old.

But, walk through it, and you’ll have a very long wait.

Why? Because the door is a gateway to a part of history.

A time before you were born and before the invention of time-travel.

Step through it, and all signs of you will be eradicated…to most people.

So, technically, you’ll still exist, but not to everyone.

Those who know you still exist can come and visit you whenever they want.

By lifting the old hatch door to this one-way window, they can watch the new lives of people that existed until they stepped through the door of 1336.

      1. I visited an old one in Northern Ireland, but I can’t remember the exact year it was built. I was lucky to stay in a cottage from the 1700s in Saxmunden (I think that’s how you spell it) when I was in the UK. It’s amazing to think of all the generations of people that lived there over the years.

        1. It is, Norah. These buildings and homes have so many stories. Recently, I’ve been watching a really good TV show that looks at the history of houses and who have lived in them since they were built. It’s fascinating stuff hearing about who lived in them and the whole history of the house.

    1. Thanks, Terri. A post I should have published back in August when your Sunday Stills challenge had the theme of objects over 100-years old. I’m glad I saved the post from my trash folder. I don’t know how it ended up in there. Maybe the door had something to do with it? 😈

  1. Intriguing door! Love it! I am fascinated by unusual doors and what is behind them and where they will lead you. Ooh 1336 would be a tough time for women I would think. I would have tos disguise myself as s man to enter this one! Thanks for sharing, Hugh! 😘🤗

    1. I don’t think I’d want to ever visit 1336, Janice. No TV, no radio, no internet. I wonder if there were any books back then? If there were, how many people would be able to read them?
      I’m happy with being in the present.
      Hugs to you, Janice.
