The 19.2 millon restoration project at the Piece Hall, Halifax.

Never seen before pictures of the £19m Piece Hall transformation after it closed its doors five years ago

It was five years ago the historic Piece Hall in Halifax closed its doors to begin its £19m transformation.

The Grade I listed building was officially reopened on Yorkshire Day August 1 2017. The Chief Executive of the Piece Hall Trust has spoken about the future of the former cloth hall which made a loss of more than £850,000 in its first year. Here we take a look back at some of the never seen before pictures of the development which started in 2014.
