Introducing the Club

Salts Mill and allotments

The Club shares historical information through meetings and events, a Facebook page and group, newsletters, publications, this website and the Saltaire village website.

The Club encourages research by assisting researchers, through our research pages, and by highlighting new work in our social media and publications.

The Club supports the Saltaire Collection by depositing new research in the Collection, by encouraging donations, and through the hard work of many who are active both in the Club and in volunteering at the Collection.

The Club defends Saltaire's heritage by paying close and critical attention to developments in Saltaire, and by taking action where necessary.

Model villages in Yorkshire


In December Sheila Binns, author of "The Aesthetics of Utopia", and our own Les Brook introduced us to four of West Yorkshire’s model villages, Akroydon, Copley, West Park and Ripleyville.

The audio recording of Les's talk is available on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/0PEcAf0lUJQ

A virtual future for heritage?


Professor Andrew Pendleton from Bradford University's Visualising Heritage team was our guest last November to show us how cutting-edge technology is being used to make a visual 3D record of Bradford - with Saltaire's United Reform Church already done.

This fascinating talk was recorded and is available on the Club's YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/-JLgSeYcBMI
