Westgate, Halifax

General Points

Westgate is the street leading from Southgate to the west gate of Halifax Piece Hall.

When the Piece Hall opened in 1779, the land outside the gate was a field owned by the Vicarage of Halifax. An Act of Parliament was required to allow a road to be built, providing access to the Piece Hall.

In 2004, a plan emerged to pedestrianise Westgate, Carrier Street, and Albion Street and turn Westgate into a canopied shopping arcade. The canopy in Westgate – probably the least-used street in the town – was erected during 2006 by O. & C. Estates Limited who own the property there.
