1518 : Laminated History


HALIFAX BOROUGH MARKET (1612C-38)

Built during Victoria’s reign of wrought iron, glass and Yorkshire stone, Halifax Borough Market remains one of the finest indoor Victorian markets in the country. Many of the names are the same as they were when I was a child - Max Crossley, Arthur Worsman, Frank Grosvenor. History laminated onto stone flags.

It is a beautiful piece of history. It is remarkable that it is still in existence and it looks like it is still in good use.

I had to go on a geography lesson to pin point the location of this fantastic sight. I have not been to that part of the UK but would love to see more of it. Perhaps in 2017?

I wish there were more markets like this. The closest that comes to mind is the huge indoor market in Lancaster, PA. There's also the Pike Place Market in Seattle. The one you've shown is lovely.
