1603 : Piece Gathering


Halifax Piece Hall (August 2017)
They have just carried out a major redevelopment at the historic Halifax Piece Hall, replacing the old, stone-cobbled, sloping floor with one which is tiered and stone-flagged. Many people complain about the cost or the look of the new configuration, but it does provide a more usable space for large public gatherings, such as those which were such a part of the history of the Piece Hall in the nineteenth century.
