Well, if you're wondering why this grand Georgian building, which is on quite a different scale than anything around it, is called the Piece Hall, look no further than our panoramic pictures. Zoom in to the galleries and spot the rooms where weavers from all around the district would bring their 'pieces' to sell them to the merchants.

But the making of cloth moved into the factories and for over a century the Piece Hall was used as a wholesale market and over the years became very dilapidated. In 1976 the renovated building was re-opened to the public wimall specialist shops on its galleries, an art gallery, cafe and markets in the courtyard.

The Piece Hall is also used for a variety of events throughout the year - much use is made of the band stand.

Getting there...
The Piece Hall can be found in the very centre of Halifax and the Wool Shops car park on the ring road is just a few moments walk away.
The Lowdown...
The Piece Hall is a favourite with film and TV crews and featured in the film Brassed Off.
