A Vented Step

We were in Loches last weekend, and I noticed this architectural detail at the entry to one of the award winning boulangeries. It's a very elegant solution to the problem of what you do when the only practical place to put a door is over the ventilation for the cellar.

Looks like an easy access for any rain/flood to the cellar! It is a pretty grill though.

Very nice, indeed!

Lots of places have their cellars open to the street, with just a grill over the opening. This street would be at very little risk of flooding anyway.
