This is Cornholme and we are looking down on it from our lunch stop; tuna mayo sarnies. Very tasty :)
The area of trees in the top left of the photo has the rather attractive name of Obadiah Wood. The main road is the A646 from Halifax to Burnley, and Todmorden is a mere two miles along it to the right (south-east). We've taken the scenic route :)
The railway line bisecting the village is the same one that crossed over the Rochdale Canal at Skew bridge, right back at the beginning of our walk. Turn left for Lancashire!
The old stone terraces are splattered with colour in the sunshine, personal touches which add that extra bit of character to an already interesting street. The vivid pink back door is especially noticeable! Google maps tell me that this is Brighton Street.
The windows in the smaller building give away it's original purpose. This was a weavers cottage; an occupation requiring the maximum possible light. The loom shop would be on the upper floor with the living space below.
It's sometimes difficult to tell with these diesel multiple units (DMUs), but this train is Yorkshire bound and will probably be in Todmorden within 3 or 4 minutes. Our journey will be somewhat longer as we descend to the valley bottom, cross the railway bridge hidden just round the corner and then climb once more, up towards the Bridestones.
Today, I'm linking to Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Jenny Matlock, where the letter of the day is T for Todmorden walk.
