Halifax Piece Hall opens after £19m regeneration
The UK's only surviving 18th Century cloth trading hall has re-opened after a £19m restoration.
The opening of the Grade I listed Piece Hall in Halifax was delayed several times since work started in 2014.
Hannah Cockroft, the Halifax-born British wheelchair racer and Paralympian, rang a bell to mark the start of trading on Yorkshire Day.
The Piece Hall Trust said: "It's not easy to get across the scale and grandeur of the place."
