SD9827 : Hebden Bridge

taken 10 years ago, near to Mytholm, Calderdale, Great Britain

Hebden Bridge
Hebden Bridge
Seen from the west. The Rochdale Canal is to the right beside the railway line. The water to the left is the River Calder.

To the left of that are some of the "upstairs-downstairs" houses known as over and under dwellings which are typical of the town. These are 4 or 5 storey terraces. The upper storeys face uphill while the lower ones face downhill with their back wall against the hillside. The bottom 2 storeys are one house while the upper 2 - 3 storeys are another. This has led to unusual legal arrangements such as the "flying freehold", where the shared floor/ceiling is wholly owned by the underdwelling.
