Saltaire

Saltaire is a World Heritage Site north of Bradford that was an important site during the Industrial Revolution.

Saltaire was founded by Sir Titus Salt, a leading industrialist in Yorkshire’s thriving woollen industry during the Industrial Revolution, as a model village to house employees of his textile mill.

The site is an important site in the history of urban planning as Saltaire was planned with stone houses for Salt’s workers along with other facilities for his workers including a hospital, library, a school and a park with a boathouse. Saltaire was considered an enlightened community compared to the slums that were typical of industrial cities of the day, although Titus Salt had much influence over the lives of his workers as everything in the village was run by him.
