A huge Town Hall lies in the spacious town centre and nearby one of the largest markets (400 stalls both indoor and outdoor) in Yorkshire. The town further displays its wealth, founded on the textile industry, in the fine Victorian arcades and mills (now converted into flats). Not to be missed is Dewsbury Minster that was established in the 7th century after the first Bishop of York, Paulinus, baptised locals in the river Calder.
