Saltaire: a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Saltaire: a UNESCO World Heritage Site

This week we spent a couple of days in and around the village of Saltaire in Yorkshire.  I will be blogging about the village in later posts, but for now, here is a taster of what it is like today inside Salts Mill.

This is my offering for this week’s Thursday Doors. I do hope you like the pictures.

 The name of the village is a combination of the founder’s surname and the name of the river. Salt moved his business (five separate mills) from Bradford to this site near Shipley to arrange his workers and to site his large textile mill by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the railway.- wikipedia
