New Exhibition – Saltaire: Foundation And Legacy

New exhibition – Saltaire: Foundation and Legacy

Celebrate Saltaire World Heritage Site’s 20th anniversary by visiting a wonderful exhibition supported by knowledgable historians.

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’.
