This is another trip across the Pennines from Manchester, to the West Yorkshire town of Halifax.
The main attraction was The Piece Hall, a grand cloth trading building recently restored as a place to shop and pass the time.
It’s a magnificent piece of architecture, now with a modern piazza at its heart. My rain-speckled visit also took in the beautiful cathedral – and even a wonderful town centre Art Deco elephant. Handsome place, well worth seeing.
