TO members of the older generation Huddersfield market will always be the one that was demolished in 1967.
Many have never liked its Queensgate replacement, but now it has reached its 40th anniversary maybe it’s time to look at it afresh.
To some it’s an eyesore probably due to all the concrete used, but to others it is an architectural gem due to its hyperbolic parabloid shells.
But at least it’s warm, dry and there is a car park right next to it.
And let’s celebrate the fact that it was pioneering at the time and so has put Huddersfield on another map – the architectural one.
