Saltaire village - very close to Bradford - is now a World Heritage Site for its architecture, and quite rightly: lots of workers' cottages (appreciate, if you will, the feline close-up);

the mill itself (rather oddly, though indeed he was born in Bradford, something of a shrine to David Hockney, and an up-market and very good bookstore and home goods shop - though where was all the historical detail??).  This is a view over the allotments that Sir Titus Salt insisted separated mill from village;

and here is one of the many lions that just happens to decorate the place.  Yes, I could have wished for sunshine, but it's quite beautiful.
