Cameras have been allowed inside Halifax's Piece Hall for the first time in years, as it's restoration reaches the final stages.

The Piece Hall was built in 1779 by the merchants of Halifax to sell their cloth. It used to attract buyers from far and wide, strictly between trading hours of ten and noon on a Saturday.

It went on to be used as a town square, surviving when others did not.

The venue will soon become home to businesses hoping to sell different wares - still hoping for visitors from miles around

The redevelopment has taken three years and cost millions of pounds.

The Piece Hall officially opens on August 1st, which is also known as 'Yorkshire Day'. Watch Katie Oscroft's report.
