The oldest door in Britain in Westminster Abbey -A 900-year-old door was put in place in the 1050s, during the reign of the Abbey's founder, Edward the Confessor. The door, which measures 6.5ft by 4ft, was made from one tree which probably grew between AD 924 and 1030. Simon Thurley, of English Heritage, said: "It is incredible to think that when the door was made the Norman Conquest had not yet happened and William of Normandy was still a young man of about 20." That's pretty cool.
