Prior to our visit I was really looking forward to an interesting day immersed in the history of the village and admiring the architecture and surroundings of a World Heritage Site, of which there are only seventeen in England.

Victoria Mill a must. Great to wander round the village and imagine it in Victorian times. Plenty of cafes. Interesting, individual shops. Canal and Roberts Park at bottom of Victoria Road. Handy rail and bus links.

Ambience, next to river; but hard to access by car, as there were blocked streets, and the road name signs were dark at night and on one side only

A lovely little village which brings history to life. The quaint terraced streets built for the mill workers are lovely to walk around. Find out more about the village in the Salts Mill.

Rejuvenation of a mills. World heritage site. Still lived in today by ordinary people. Lots to see from shopping to museums.

The architecture is lovely, the mill stupendous - particularly the tower modelled on Italian campaniles. The whole village is fascinating - and a greast example of a paternalistic owner's regard for his workers. Nearby the canal provides good walks.
