Long Row

click photo to enlarge
Long Row is the befitting name of this stretch of cottages in the rural industrial hamlet of Calder Vale, Lancashire. This housing was erected for the workers of the cotton mill that was built here in 1835. The mill is still working today, though powered by electricity rather than the river and mill pond of this deep little valley.

"If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do,
Chapels had been churches,
And poor men's cottages princes' palaces"
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), English dramatist, (from "The Merchant of Venice")
