Salts Mill, Saltaire

Salts Mill was built in the 1850s and, at the time, was the largest industrial building in the world by floor area.  Now completely refurbished, it houses art galleries, a fabulous book shop, restaurants and many other stores in a really well thought out shopping complex. The art on display includes the largest permanent exhibition of work by the northern powerhouse that is David Hockney.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.

  1. Love this place! Have a family connection to it as my great great grandfather was part of the consortium of local Bradford businessmen who bought out the Salt family when the mill ran into difficulties! I always linger in the book shop – it’s wonderful the way they make use of the old industrial space for the artworks and restaurants very well done!
