1570 : A Reset Jewel In The Crown


The architectural jewel in the crown of Halifax is, of course, the eighteenth century Piece Hall which contains a fine open square surrounded by over 300 trading rooms which were originally used for trading in pieces of cloth. Over the years it has been used for a variety of purposes from orchestral performances to a wholesale fruit and vegetable market. It is currently undergoing a major upgrade and redevelopment and should open later in the year. For the moment, the imposing stone gates are as far as you can get.
