Days away with places to explore at our own leisurely pace...

Our aim is to choose a location and go a wandering.

Find the hidden places of interest and lunch venues of course.

No pre-arranged ideas so we would be free to wander in small groups and make our own discoveries.

We could share our knowledge on our return.

We would travel on a car sharing basis, not too far away, or maybe use the bus or train if feasible.




So come and join us and let's just go a wandering

September 2019 - The Piece Hall 9.00am - Halifax

Piece Hall Halifax

The Piece Hall in Halifax has been dubbed
'Yorkshire's Most Important Secular Building'
An architectural phenomenon, absolutely unique, rare and precious

It is grade II listed and the sole survivor of the northern cloth halls of the eighteenth century

It was built as a cloth hall, dating back to 1779, for trading 30 yard lengths of cloth, known as 'pieces' of woven woollen material produced on a handloom

There is a wealth of things to do and explore

There are: Art shops and galleries, cafes, restaurants, bars as well as various shops and a heritage centre to explore

The Piece Hall is a unique experience for all

We intend to travel by train as Halifax railway station is quite close by and only five minutes’ walk away
