Hidden hero: William Fairbairn

Les Brook, Chair of Saltaire History Club, has compiled a short biography of an unsung hero: William Fairbairn.

Fairbairn designed the interior of Salts Mill, and Les pays homage to the significant engineering skills that enabled the mill to smoothly operate all the functions that took raw materials through the series of processes required to make high quality cloth.

View William Fairbairn’s biography, which is one of our many stories of the men and women who helped to create Saltaire.
