This metropolitan Borough was based on the County Borough of halifax and, among others, the municipal boroughs of Elland, Brighouse, Ripponden and Todmorden. Todmorden is included under

The principal places in Halifax of appeal to visitors are the Eureka Museum of Childhood, excellent for children but unfortunately expensive for their parents, The Industrial and Pre-Industrial Museums and the Piece Hall [not PEACE] where the 'pieces' or lengths of wol were brought for sale.
The Piece Hall consists of a huge coutyard with beautiful iron gates and a number of interesting shops in upper arcades surrounding the courtyard. The courtyard is often the home to markets.
