From its status as a busy industrial town producing and dealing in wool, carpets, machine tools and confectionery to its role in the world of banking as the home of Halifax plc (now part of HBOS), Halifax has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the town, many designed by famous architects such as Sir Charles Barry, John Carr and Sir George Gilbert Scott.


Halifax in 50 Buildings explores the history of this West Yorkshire minster town through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures, from the magnificent Piece Hall, now reopened to the public and home to many arts, crafts and independent shops, to the acclaimed Eureka!, the National Children's Museum. Author and historian Peter Thornborrow, and photographer Paul Gwilliam celebrate Halifax's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way as they guide the reader around the town's historic and modern buildings.
