Saltaire United Reformed Church, Yorkshire, England Featured Bradford Image

Saltaire United Reformed Church, Yorkshire, England

Saltaire United Reformed Church is one of England's most precious Victorian architectural gems. The church, built by Sir Titus Salt in 1859 near Bradford, West Yorkshire, is a unique example of Italianate religious architecture. It boasts many architecturally and historically important features and has been described as a classic a??Cathedral of Congregationalisma??.
Sir Titus commissioned architects Lockwood and Mawson to design the building, as they had designed a number of other important Italianate buildings in Bradford City centre.
The Mausoleum built onto the church contains the remains of Sir Titus Salt himself.
Saltaire is an exceptionally complete and well preserved industrial village of the second half of the 19th century, located on the river Aire. Its textile mills, public buildings, and workers housing are built in a harmonious style of high architectural quality and the urban plan survives intact, giving a vivid impression of the philanthropic approach to industrial management.
Saltaire is named after Sir Titus Salt who built a textile mill and housing for his workers.
In 2001 the historic industrial village including this church was placed on the Unesco World Heritage list

The mill at Saltaire, c1880

The mill at Saltaire, c1880. Sir Titus Salt (1803-1876) discovered a method of blending alpaca wool with cotton and silk. He is best remembered as the builder of Saltaire Mill near Bradford, Yorkshire, and the surrounding model company town of Saltaire. Shops, a library and other facilities were provided for the workers, but no public houses as Salt was a teetotaller.
