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.
