a World Heritage Site in West Yorkshire, England, is a well-preserved industrial village from the second half of the 19th century. Located within the Bradford Metropolitan District, Saltaire is regarded as a Victorian model village.
Saltaire was founded in 1853 by industrialist Sir Titus Salt as a textile mill. He moved his whole operations, comprising five separate mills, from Bradford, so that he could provide better facilities for his workers. At the newly established township, he built living quarters for the employees, providing them with a hospital, a library, a reading room, a gymnasium and even a science laboratory. He also built a school for his workers' children, along with a park and boathouse.
Saltaire was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 25th session of the World Heritage Committee in Helsinki, Finland, on 11 - 16 December, 2001. Saltaire is also one of the anchor points on the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
