Salts Mill


Wash House

Yesterday afternoon there was a flurry of snow flakes - didn't last long but was very exciting. You can just see the flakes on the ground if you peer hard enough.

This morning we went to visit the Saltaire village, but as we stepped off the boat we nearly went for a sixer - icy footpath everywhere. So we took it very gingerly and paid attention to where we were walking.

Saltaire is a village built by Titus Salt and takes it's name from his surname and the river Aire which runs through the property.

Mr Salt provided housing for his workers, along with doctors, dentists, a church and school, all close to the mill. He named all the streets after his children, the queen and the architects who designed the complex.

The mill is now a gallery and shops
