The town centre of Halifax contains some interesting buildings including the recently reopened and "relaunched" Piece Hall (which featured in the film "Brassed Off" starring Pete Postlethwaite and Ewan MacGregor), Wainhouse Tower, and is also home of the Halifax Gibbet - an English guillotine used to dispense capital punishment long before the device used in the French Revolution was invented.
Also nearby is the village of Southowram, where Emily Bronte taught for a while at Law Hill House. It was there that she is believed to have gained inspiration for her novel "Wuthering Heights". Indeed, the nearby (but now demolished) High Sunderland Hall is believed by many Bronte enthusiasts to have been actual residence of "Wuthering Heights" itself!
