97 Main St (Piece Hall) John Cockshott & Son Butchers. 1950s

This building was constructed for Martin & Samuel Cockshott c1826 and has just about the most imposing elevation in Main Street. There is a pediment above tall pilasters within which is a carved urn. it is the only building in Addingham to be illustrated in the Pevsner series of architecture reference books (The buildings of England: Yorkshire West Riding, Leeds, Bradford, and the North, Yale University Press 2009).
Local historian Kate Mason described this structure as the Cockshotts 'Piece Hall' but production of cotton pieces on hand-looms was beginning a terminal decline. Shortly after completion the building was used as a grocery store managed by James Hudson.
It is now 3 residential cottages.
