The History of Hull Lighting & Our Chapel Lane Premises


Chapel Lane - One of Hull’s oldest streets

This map of Hull from 1600 shows the historic street pattern of the old walled town. Many streets in the heart of the Old Town, where Hull Lighting has it's showroom, are still in place today. Chapel Lane is so named after the chapel which pre-dates the mediaeval St Mary The Virgin church on the corner of Lowgate and Chapel Lane. Hull Lighting is the next building along Chapel Lane from St Mary's.


Cliff Wood Ltd
established in 1959

Our roots date from 1959, when Cliff Wood opened up his electrical business in Mytongate, in Hull's old town. The City had been badly damaged in wartime raids and many buildings in the area were in poor repair. The City Council had decided to make way for a new trunk road through the south of the city and with the Cliff Wood Ltd building on Mytongate subject to a compulsary purchase order the company relocated to Chapel Lane in 1970.


Chapel Lane from Lowgate

From the 1970's Hull City centre saw a period of redevelopment. The partly-demolished buildings in the foreground made way for a new Court complex which included an open paved area leading from Lowgate to the front of Hull Lighting's showrooms, which opened after sister company Cliff Wood Ltd moved to the buildings in the centre ground of this picture.



Hull Lighting is one of the North's largest lighting showrooms, with tens of thousands of stock items ready to take home or be shipped around the world. The internet has opened up a vast global market and won us friends and customers from all corners of the world. We are still a family-owned business and believe it is our personal, old-fashioned approach to service and product knowledge, as well as our vast range of lighting for every situation that sets us apart.
