Portsmouth, West Yorkshire
Portsmouth is a village on the A646 road in the Calderdale District, in the county of West Yorkshire, England. Nearby settlements include the towns of Burnley and Todmorden and the village of Cornholme. It is in Todmorden.
Historically part of Lancashire, the many boundary changes in the area have resulted in the village now being part of Calderdale, West Yorkshire. In the 19th century it was in Cliviger township, Whalley parish, and the border to Yorkshire ran east of the place. For electoral purposes, Portsmouth was counted as part of parliamentary constituencies of Lancashire until 1917, and of the West Riding of Yorkshire from 1918.
