Dewsbury PG – Pioneer House Online Exhibition

Dewsbury Photographic Group are holding an online exhibition on the architectural refurbishment work carried out over a four year period from late 2016 on the Dewsbury Pioneer Co-operative Building.

Kirklees Council and the Dewsbury Township Heritage Initiative in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund have transformed the former 19th century derelict Cooperative Pioneer building into a 21st century state of the art learning centre which opened to students in November 2020.

Images taken by Members of Dewsbury Photographic Group can be viewed by clicking on the link below.

The images in the exhibition were captured by three of the long standing members of the group who have been instrumental in putting all the images together over a four year period.

The three members actually took over 2,500 images and produced fifty prints that will go on exhibition in the new college. The images were processed by the three members, then printed and mounted in frames and delivered to the college in late November.

The slide show consists of various stages of the refurbishment and shows some images of areas when completed.

A PDF flyer for the poster is available for download.
