Saltaire: Foundation and Legacy
Celebrate Saltaire World Heritage Site's 20th anniversary
A wonderful free exhibition supported by knowledgable historians.
Across 19 days between 28 May 2021 and 20 June 2021
at the Salts Mill boardroom
Victoria Road, Saltaire, SHIPLEY, West Yorkshire BD18 3LF
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. Without Roberts, the founder's legacy could easily have been lost.
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
. Robert Owen? Richard Arkwright? Yes: the big names at those World Heritage sites.
And your exhibition concludes with a beautiful show of photographs on the theme 'International Saltaire'.
