First look inside Halifax’s newly restored Piece Hall

In its heyday the Piece Hall only opened for two hours, once a week. When Halifax’s historic landmark reopens on Yorkshire Day, following a long-awaited £19m renovation project, the new shop owners will have to work a little harder.

From next month, the Piece Hall, which was where 18th century textile merchants came to trade cloth, will be a seven day a week operation as it seeks to spark a wider regeneration of the town.
