Causeway Side, Todmorden

A footpath or packhorse route, typically across moorland.

The word is derived from cauci weg from the Norman French cauci [an embankment or mound] and the Old English weg [a way], and means a way across an embankment.

Early stone causeways were built in the Middle Ages to serve the local monasteries and manors, such as those linking Whalley, Kirkstall, and Pontefract.

During the enclosures, walls were built along both sides of some causeways, as at Mankinholes.

See Causeway, Halifax, Causey, Old Causeway and Long Causeway

A causeway or paved road which is raised above the level of the ground – especially on wet or soft ground – such as would be used for packhorse routes prior to the construction of turnpike roads. These were built from 1412 onwards. There were 3 types of causey
  1. A foot causey
  2. A horse causey – typically 3 ft in width
  3. A cart causey – typically 8 ft in width

Other roads were unmade and maintained as provided by the Highways Act [1555].

The word comes from the French chausée and means trodden. It is not a corruption of causeway.

Contributor Keith Garner writes
Church Bank Square in Sowerby Bridge was immediately to the West of Christ Church and accessed by a ginnel from Wharf Street, or through a gate off Church Bank. There were 3 small 2-up-2 down terrace houses and a cabinet makers workshop. I believe the houses were built in the mid-17th Century. Our house was the first of the block and our bedroom (the kids) had a small window which looked directly onto the gravestones in the graveyard. We moved out in the mid-forties and the houses were demolished not long afterwards

The house which is now Numbers 11 & 13, is an important late 16th century timber-framed house.

At the beginning of the 1900s, Joseph Hall lived at Number 11, and Number 13 was Sykes's confectionery shop.

The present owner of Number 11, tells me:

There was a shop here in the 19th century. The front of the shop was Number 13, the offices at Number 11. In one of the back rooms, there is a working safe [dated 1862] in situ. In the living room of Number 11, you can see where there was a passage way into Number 13. As Number 11 is set back from the road – and with the passage way – we suspect that the real front of number 13 was originally along the same line and the front building is a Victorian addition
