Menai Suspension Bridge has narrow arches with a width restriction of 2.6 metres and a height limit of 4.7 metres.
HGVs, large lorries, and buses will normally use Britannia Bridge, the other bridge crossing the Menai Strait between the Isle of Anglesey and the mainland, which is subject to less restrictive width and height limits.
During periods of high winds, when Britannia Bridge is closed to high-sided vehicles, the Menai Bridge offers an alternative crossing route, provided vehicle size limits are observed.
The Piece Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire, opened in 1779 as a cloth hall, where pieces of woollen fabric woven on handlooms would be traded by the area’s clothiers.
The 19th-century industrial revolution brought automation and scale to the area’s weaving industry, and the fall in the number of small-scale producers precipitated a decline in the Piece Hall’s fortunes to such an extent that it was acquired by Halifax Corporation in 1868.
It was operated as a wholesale market until 1971 before being renovated as a tourist attraction with shops, a museum and gallery. In 2014, it underwent a £17 million restoration project, reopening in 2017 as a leisure, arts and entertainment venue with independent shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes, a gallery, and live music facilities.
The magnificent Grade I-listed building is recognised as an important example of Georgian architecture and the only surviving intact cloth hall in Britain.
Southampton Airport Parkway Station is located adjacent to Southampton Airport and is a short walk from the terminal building via a mostly covered walkway.
