Seems such a strange layout. Why are houses like this with three levels only containing one bedroom?. A lot of space to fit another one with a bit of work. :)

I think it is most fans dream to live in Holmfirth, but to actually own a characters house would be even better.

The Euromillions is a £100-million rollover, I believe, this Friday. Are most people taking part then?

As stated they would have been used for weaving. In the Pennies there area lot of three or even four storied houses; some with bits known as under-dwellings or over-dwellings where part of the house is on top of some one else's. The main examples are found in Hebden Bridge but there are some examples in Holmfirth - the most noted one for us being Norah and Compo's which have some complex arrangement which is why Compo's front door is under Norah;s but his bedroom window is to one side not far from her kitchen window..

I would only want to live in Clegg's house if it looked the same as when he lived there. It does look nice in the photos, but it would feel strange.

Alan Bell's recent book indicates that arrangement was a fiction of the show and not the real situation. The window Compo was always filmed in is much further down the building. They just made it look like Nora was looking up to a window on the same level as her front door but to the side. If you watch carefully you'll see that they never show Nora looking up at Compo in the same shot - they keep cutting back and forth between the two.
