SD9828 : Cloth Hall, Heptonstall

taken 9 years ago, near to Heptonstall, Calderdale, Great Britain

Cloth Hall, Heptonstall
Cloth Hall, Heptonstall
The Cloth Hall was where local handloom weavers brought their cloth for sale to dealers. A carving above the door states 'Cloth Hall, 1545 - 1558'. Does this refer to the time taken to build the hall, which does seem to be along time, or to the time the hall was in use, which seems to be a very short time?

Heptonstall once thrived on the woollen trade until the end of the 18th Century when water, and then steam powered mills determined that the industry was located in the tributary valleys of the Calder. As a result, Hebden Bridge developed below, with the help of the Rochdale canal.
