The window tax was a property tax based on the number of windows in a house...to avoid the tax, some houses from the period can be seen to have bricked-up window-spaces (ready to be glazed or reglazed at a later date) #windowtax #london #raynesparkconstruction #raynespark #wimbledon #wimbleonvillage #lofts #extensions #loftconversions #investinliving #livethedream

Can you spot something wrong with this house? Of course it’s the bricked-up window. I suspect this is an example of window-tax avoidance. The window tax was a property tax based on the number of windows in a house, in force in England, France, Ireland and Scotland during the 18th and 19th centuries. To avoid the tax some houses from the period have bricked-up window-spaces, which could be reopened at a later date. In England the tax was introduced in 1696 and repealed in 1851. France had a similar tax, from 1798 to 1926, l’impôt sur les portes et fenêtres. As far as I know, there was never a window tax in Belgium which is why you don’t see a lot of bricked-up windows here.

Not being cheeky when I say I kind of love the view out of my window today - a bricked up window really gets my imagination going. #backlanes #mystery #intrigue #windowtax #whoknows #Dumfries #scotland #myworkingday

I felt so inspired and energised after hanging my 'Here' project @casementarts yesterday. I decided to hang around Tontine Street a little longer and take some more shots (this time on my phone) in the spirit of the project. The opening is tomorrow 2-5 and all are welcome x
