Visit Halifax Piece Hall
T: 01422 240024
The Piece Hall in Halifax is ‘Yorkshire’s most important secular building’. Originally built in 1779 in the centre of Halifax, its purpose was to support the trading of ‘pieces’ of cloth (30-yard lengths of woven woollen fabric, produced on a handloom). In fact it became a central meeting point of Halifax’s commercial, civic and cultural life for almost 250 years.
