Streets of Saltaire


On Saturday we went on a little trip, first stopping in at Saltaire for lunch and wanderings. This little town was built and owned by a rather impressive man named Sir Titus Salt, who owned the town mill. He built all the houses, churches, schools, halls and shops to service his workers, so they entire place has a lovely sense of harmony and repetition. It is now a UNESCO world heritage site.

Gill has been super efficient and blogged about the whole weekend at her brand new blog!




There was a festival with live music and food, as well as hundreds of brave souls who were trudging around it in the rain. Only in Britain would rain be considered no obstacle to a festival outing!

  2. Good to hear the rain didn't stop you :)
    Looks like a great time.

    No idea what is up with my comment system but it ate yours, so while I work out why it disappeared:

    I got my wig on eBay, it's a heat stylable cosplay one so you can pick them up dirt cheap. Only the fringe is a little elaborate.. but there are more natural looking cuts around. :)
