We will occasionally add online exhibitions as an introduction to areas of our collection.
Saltaire Collection and Saltaire History Club collaborated with Derwent Valley Mills and New Lanark to prepare some shared materials for the Foundation and Legacy Exhibition taking place between May 28 and June 20, 2021 in the old boardroom at Salts Mill. All three sites were designated as World Heritage Sites in December 2001 by UNESCO.
The Saltaire Collection and Saltaire History Club worked together in 2019 to tell the stories of Saltaire’s unsung Heroes and Heroines. The exhibition features the men and women who built Saltaire, educators, some who used their wealth for good or who worked to make life better for others.
Saltaire has the status of a World Heritage Site because of its international and national significance. To mark World Heritage Day 2019, we have created an online exhibition to demonstrate some of Saltaire’s global connections.
