Once-imposing doorways, hidden courtyards and narrow alleys in Leominster. Some of the alleyways are still named for the trades that once were practised there. I don’t know how they did it; the alleys are only about a metre wide!

This pretty little cottage is in Leominster’s town centre, in between the library car park and a 1980s shopping arcade.

Drapers Lane in the rain. This little street is well-maintained, with some interesting shops. It still struggles to draw trade, though.
The civic society has a gallery of unusual shop doorways featuring paved threshholds, which often had the original shopkeeper’s name worked in.
