In 1696 there was a window tax imposed across England. It was a banded tax that increased with the number of windows. This led to many windows (especially in London) being blocked off. The tax was repealed in 1851 but you can still see the impact of the tax today! This property on Albert Street is a great example of this 🏡 #daylightrobbery #camdentown #camden #london #northlondon #house #fact #window #windowtax #albertstreet #estateagent #property #marketing #lifestyle #social

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 In England the tax was introduced in 1696 and repealed in 1851.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
