Jan 2021 Another architectural find at First White Cloth Hall, Leeds.


Oak timbers within the building have been tested, using carbon dating techniques and are thought to be over 1000 years old.


H.H. Smith, painstakingly and carefully removed the 1000 year old trusses, whilst sensitively demolishing parts of the building, for later reuse. They will no longer be weight bearing, but will provide a fascinating insight into the buildings historic past.
