Lancashire has the highest amount of empty homes in England on January 3, 2013 in Accrington, England. There are estimated to be 850,000 empty homes in the United Kingdom even though local councils still have long waiting lists for housing. The terraced houses were due to be rejuvenated by Accrington council but the project was put on hold when the government cut a housing regeneration project. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
