A very interesting village created & built under the direction of Sir Titus Salt. Sir Titus Salt made his fortune in the wool trade. Like many other Victorian entrepreneurs he wanted to improve the living conditions & lives of his work force, Saltaire is the result of his vision.
If you start your visit at the Salt Mill, they show a 50 minute DVD outside the Carlton Antique shop on the second floor. It is free to watch & tells you the story of Sir Titus Salt and explains the story behind the various buildings in the village. This information is most useful to have as you wonder around the streets viewing the various properties.
