IHBC Yorkshire AGM & talk on Cultural Heritage in Gjirokastra, Albania by Andrew Shepherd, Architect,

October 2020

Our first Virtual AGM seemed to go reasonably well, albeit with some hiccups experienced by Andrew Shepherd & his computer! Hence an initial delay was used to allow those present to introduce themselves and showed what variety of professions & expertise is enjoyed by IHBC Yorkshire. We then allowed the AGM to proceed, followed by a talk by Andrew on Cultural Heritage in Gjirokastra, Albania – a fascinating & interesting presentation on Heritage in Albania. It was reminiscent of a project Naiomi Kempton was involved in about 8 years ago in Bulgaria. Good to hear reference to David Baxter’s excellent work at Bontida with the Transylvanian Trust.

IHBC Yorkshire Branch – tour of Halifax Piece Hall

Saturday, 3rd March 2018

Cost: £6.88 (£5 + VAT + Eventbrite booking fee)

"The Piece Hall is one of Britain’s most extraordinary buildings. Built in 1779 to trade ‘pieces’ of cloth, it is now the UK’s sole surviving cloth hall and offers a unique window back into our past.

Its near 250-year history has seen the building tale on many transformations – in Georgian times as a place for trading locally made ‘Kersey’ and other cloth, later as a gathering point for Victorian spectacles and political rallies. It then became a wholesale marker, before being transformed into a visitor attraction and, most recently, undergoing an extensive conservation programme.

During your visit, we will take you on a journey spanning almost quarter of a millennium. You will meet characters from the past and hear fascinating stories about this truly incredible building.”
