Saltaire is a 'model' Victorian industrial village, near Bradford, purpose-built by the Victorian philanthropist Sir Titus Salt to provide self- containing living spaces for the workers at his woolen mills. It is now a World Heritage Site. On arrival, coffee and biscuits will be provided in the United Reform Church, one of Britain's most precious Victorian buildingsand then a guided tour will take place around the village, followed by a visit to Salt's mill which houses works of David Hockney. Lunch can be taken at the mill and there is an opportunity to see the gallery and walk around the shops. As this event involves walking members need to be mobile and wear comfortable footwear.
