The Piece Hall

Blackledge, Halifax HX1 1RE, UK – 01422 525200

This is a fantastic place to visit just for the architecture! This is just as well as, at the moment, there are still quite a few empty shop spaces. However, the shops that are open are genuinely offering something different. Good place to buy some presents for people. Couple of good places to eat and plenty of choice in the surrounding streets. Great event space in the middle- I want to go back next Summer when there is an event that uses this space.

The old ruin has been updated in a wonderful style, well worthy of its original status. Much nicer to walk around with nice paving and flowing water features to complete the three story parade. Lots of great shops and some cafes. It's the second time I have visited in the last 6 weeks. One of my favourite shops sells old style sweeties, while one of the department stores from Halifax Harvey's, has a great shop on one corner of the first floor. Last week they there was a lantern making session for Christmas tree decoration, and the police were present in the form of their brass band. One of the people responsible for co-ordinating most of the work on the site left just prior to the opening. Well done Graham. Pity your work was not recognised by the incoming co-ordinating.
