    What a great place! We travelled to Shipley especially from Cornwall (via family!) to see the place- very glad we did! What an incredible building. Full of interesting shops and cafe, but best of all… a lot of Hockney. Well worth spending some time here!

    My recent visit to Saltaire Victorian Village in West Yorkshire offered a fascinating journey into the past. At the heart of Saltaire stands the impressive Salt Mill, once a bustling hub of industry that now stands as a silent sentinel to days gone by. While the mill itself is no longer operational, its imposing presence serves as a reminder of the region's industrial heritage and the innovative spirit that shaped its development.

    As I strolled through the village's quaint streets lined with Victorian-era houses, I couldn't help but appreciate the architectural charm and historical significance of each building. From the neatly arranged rows of terraces to the meticulously preserved storefronts, Saltaire Victorian Village offers a glimpse into a time when craftsmanship and community were paramount.

    Saltaire Victorian Village offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. In addition to its historical landmarks, Saltaire Victorian Village also boasts a vibrant cultural scene with art galleries, shops, and cafes that add to its allure. While the village may not offer the same level of excitement as more bustling tourist destinations, its understated charm and rich heritage make it a worthwhile stop for those seeking a leisurely day of exploration and reflection.

    Beautiful wild spot. Take a cardi and sun cream as it is exposed up there.

    Info - Public toilets down the hill after the golf club.

    Opened in 2013 the Aire Sculpture trail is a bit of fun which starts with the Octopus at the canal by the Boathouse Inn and continues initially down the canal and then the River Aire along to the Dog in a Dinghy at the Baildon Bridge on the Otley Road. This is a decent riverside walk anyway, taking about 20 minutes in one direction, but it is made more interesting having to spot the 15 pieces of artwork, something we actually failed to do on the first pass.
    Yes, sadly the local youth have decided to embellish a couple of them with the usual juvenile graffiti, but it isn’t that offensive and doesn’t detract too much. In fact a bigger problem is what to do when you get to the Baildon Bridge, as this is on the fairly boring town outskirts. You could always turn around and retrace your steps making it about a 40 minute walk in total, but if doing the walk on Wednesday to Saturday after 12pm my recommendation would be to extend it by crossing the road and continuing along Dockfield Road to the Saltaire Brewery Tap. And then after a fresh pint of Saltaire Blonde you can then retrace your steps back along the Leeds Liverpool Canal to where you started.

    This memorial commemorates those from Shipley who were killed or missing in World War I and World War II. The monument is a three-stepped octagonal base, supporting a slender tapering shaft ending in a Latin cross. The memorial is located roughly in the middle of Crowgill Park.
