Wed Jul 13thAway DaysSaltaire £28 per person
Saltaire Village is located in England on the outskirts of Bradford, West Yorkshire, and owes its name to Sir Titus Salt, a textile magnate and philanthropist who built a mill and a village for his workers by the River Aire. Salts Mill was a masterpiece of its time and was hugely productive, turning out 18 miles of worsted cloth a day on 1200 looms attended to by 3000 workers. It was opened on 20 September 1853, Titus Salt’s 50th birthday and was celebrated with a banquet for his workers in the Mill’s combing shed.
The Mill changed hands - the textile industry faltered and the Mill closed in 1986. The following year it was bought by local entrepreneur, Jonathan Silver, who transformed it into a place of art and commerce. Jonathan died in 1997 aged only 47, though the Mill remains vibrant and in the care of his family
