It has been given a new lease of life with a £2.9 million modernisation, sympathetic to the original 1899 building, retaining and restoring most of the original features. Fergus Shaw, director of Silver Arcade’s engineer Diamond Wood and Shaw, said: “The beautifully- restored Silver Arcade is a real jewel in our retail sector.”
