    Welcome to the valley of the sheep - schep dene - the home of the Lister family for over 300 years. Shibden Hall was the home of the noted 19th century diarist Anne Lister (1791 - 1840). The Hall, dating originally from circa 1420, is a distinctive half-timbered building furnished in the styles of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, adapted and extended throughout the centuries by the families who lived here.

    Imagine a market day in Halifax. Two thieves are being led from the gaol and in turn, forced to lie with their heads between two upright posts. Above, a fearsome blade is glinting in the sunlight. A horse, yoked to a rope, wrenches out the security pin and the blade slices down..! The date was 30th April 1650 and Halifax Gibbet had claimed its last victim. The Halifax gibbet was an early guillotine. The Lord of the Manor possessed the authority to execute summarily by decapitation any thief who was caught with stolen goods to the value of 13½d or more, or who confessed to having stolen goods of at least that value. Decapitation was a fairly common method of execution in England, but Halifax was unusual in that it employed a guillotine-like machine that appears to have been unique in the country, and it continued to decapitate petty criminals until the mid-17th century. A 15 foot high replica of the Gibbet has been constructed on the original site at the bottom of Gibbet Street. To find the Gibbet; from Halifax town centre, take Pellon Lane, turning left onto Bedford Street North. The Gibbet is at the end of the street, to your left, on the junction with Gibbet Street. The Gibbet’s original blade has been preserved and is on display at Bankfield Museum, Halifax.

    West Yorkshire family-run business, Al’s Emporium, sells antique, retro & vintage style furniture and collectables. They also support local artists and “wannabe Lord Sugars” by renting out glass display cabinets, showcasing handmade crafts, collectables, antiques, militaria, art and the weird & wonderful. There is always an eclectic mix of different items at Al’s Emporium to suit all pockets and tastes. Al’s Emporium has moved to The Piece Hall from a high street shop in the market town of Todmorden to concentrate on promoting their smaller items of vintage & antique furniture and collectables. Al’s Emporium gained its name from a long standing family joke, at the expense of its owner, Alan Sargent, part of the husband and wife team who own the family business. It was the nickname given to Alan’s storage unit which family and friends referred to as “Al’s Emporium” because of the amount of items stored in it. Alan and Simone are working towards Al’s Emporium becoming a “must-go-to” shop at The Piece Hall where customers will always receive a first class service and a warm Yorkshire welcome.
