The Piece Hall in Halifax has re-open today following a multi-million-pound transformation.

The grade one listed Georgian structure has been closed for more than three and a half years.

It is now a venue for shops, restaurants and concerts.

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.
