Enter vaults here

Continuing my little architectural and photographic journey through Hertford, today’s picture is a little detail from a much larger piece of wall signage in the centre of the town.

"Entrance to vaults" sign, Hertford

“Entrance to vaults” sign, Hertford

It’s actually on the wall of what the larger sign tells us used to be the Green Dragon Hotel.  McMullen, the local brewer, had bonded vaults beneath, and this little piece of decorated brickwork sits just above the door to those cellars.  Sadly, I could never get in – I imagine they would be fascinating to explore.

I’m fairly sure that when I used to sell prints at art fairs in Hertfordshire, someone bought a copy of this image.  I’ve always quietly wondered just where they were intending to hang it…!
