    "Closed over" - what is it?

    Hi all,

    I have a quick question. I've heard someone say "The door was closed over". Does it mean the door was left ajar?

    Thanks for help.

    Ken.
    Some sort of context would help, but my immediate impression is that the door has been permanently shut with possibly timber or masonry used to cover the opening.

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I don't have any context as it was just a random conversation and that's the bit I remember.
