Visit to the Piece Hall, Halifax

On a windy and cool September morning, nine members of the Friendship Group that meets at Wheeler Hall, along with two volunteers and one staff member, met at Leeds Railway Station to set out on our trip to the Piece Hall in Halifax. A number of our members had not been on a train for years so it felt like an adventure from the very beginning.

We arrived in Halifax and most of the group went for a warming coffee or tea and then we met our guide for our Heritage Weekend Tour of the Piece Hall. Our guide was fantastic and we learnt all about the history of the Piece Hall and the fact that it is the only one left in the UK. The autumnal weather made us keep moving but we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

After the tour we followed our noses and went for some delicious fish and chips. We were looked after very well and were warmed through by the time we left.

Everyone was tired on the journey home but had really enjoyed our outing . We are looking forward to our next adventure together!
