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.

Photography competition

Saltaire History Club, Saltaire Inspired and Saltaire Collection are excited to announce the launch of a photography competition as part of the 20th anniversary of Saltaire’s UNESCO World Heritage Site inscription in 2021.
The theme of the competition is ‘International Saltaire', and it is open to hobbyists or professionals. A small selection of entries will be displayed as part of a larger heritage exhibition, 'Saltaire: Foundation and Legacy' (28 May - 20 June in the old boardroom at Salts Mill) and cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd places and a 'peoples choice'.

Coming soon - new free exhibition

Celebrate Saltaire World Heritage Site's 20th anniversary at a wonderful exhibition supported by knowledgable historians.

Through text and images, the exhibition will tell you about Titus Salt, the founder of the village, and James Roberts, one of his successors as the owner of the mighty Salt's Mill. We'll show you unique artefacts and answer your questions. We'll also introduce you to the two brilliant industrial history sites that were given global recognition alongside Saltaire: New Lanark in Scotland and Derwent Valley in Derbyshire. And your exhibition will conclude with a beautiful show of photographs on the theme 'International Saltaire'.
