    What dimensions do you need?

    How about these?:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_...sid=m570.l1313&_nkw=LPD+4+panel+door&_sacat=0

    No idea if any good, but there is a Damaged one here:

    And they seem to have several LPD doors:

    Thanks, I have been trawling ebay and a lot of them are Oak :( I have been contacting the sellers of recently sold ones to see if the sale went through!

    I am even thinking of getting the 1930 design pitch pine doors and seeing if it can be upcycled into a 4 panel!

    Yes, sorry I highlighted an Oak door, was aiming for Pitch Pine.
    Good luck, and hopefully someone on this forum might know the location of one.

    Well it turns out there is a worldwide shortage of pitch pine!
    I have managed to track down and order a 33 inch wide 1930 style LPD Door that I will get deconstructed so I can make it back into a 4 panel door… this door will go on my boiler cupboard and the proper 4 panel door will get swapped over for the new cloakroom.

    Whilst tying to track down a door I went to the local charity shop and purchased a pine door for £10 that I thought would be ok, turns out it was not pitch pine when all the varnish was removed !! Anyway it made its way into a hallway bench, not very comfortable but ok for dumping stuff on it :)

    Pitch pine is a more red/brown wood colour.
