Historic textile town Oct 11, 2011
For entirely personal reasons this is not a town I like and I hope only to see it in future when passing through by train. However I do think it is a town worth seeing by anybody in the area.

I have reviewed the Gibbet separately but this, the Piece (sic) Hall and the Wainhouse Tower are all worth seeing. I have not been to the art gallery at dean Clough but the view of Dean Clough from the nearby road bridge is a real sight of industrial archaeology.

The town Hall is a fine building and easy to visit. The old market is quite something as well.

However much building has been done over the years without apparent thought of preserving interesting historic views and you could well find it disappointing for photography.

I should still not like Halifax myself but it could have been a remarkably fine city architecturally.
