Bradford Corp v Pickles (1895), AC 587 (HL)


P deliberately diverts water so that it doesn’t go onto neighbour’s property anymore; with the goal of getting them to buy his land at inflated price.


No one has right to water running to their property. The diversion of water by a neighbour does not constitute a nuisance.


Decision in favour of P, who is not committing a legal wrong.
