The Arcade - Dewsbury
Late-Victorian shopping arcade in Dewsbury to be restored
The Arcade is a late-Victorian shopping arcade, which over time has been home to a wide variety of tenants, from coffee houses and florists, to tobacconists and record shops. A number of original features remain, including decorative cast iron work and attractive shop fronts. Following the steady departure of tenants and deterioration of the site, The Arcade closed in 2016 and has been lying empty. In 2020, Kirklees Council purchased the site from the private owner.
