Saltaire

We went out for a walk last night in search of a curry, and about a mile from our hotel we stumbled across the World Heritage Site of Saltaire.
It is a whole village built by Sir Titus Salt in the Victorian age to house the workers and their families who toiled at his mill. The enormous mill (pic 2) and chimney is next to the village and at the bottom of a hill by a canal. He also built beautiful public buildings, a school and church.
The whole place looked lovely and it was good to see some late evening sun.
