I deliberately haven't featured many photos of Roberts Park in Saltaire on my blog thus far. The Park is currently undergoing a major renovation of both the structural aspects and the planting. Hilary Taylor Landscape Associates (HTLA), historic landscape consultants, have been contracted by Bradford Council to plan and oversee the work. The restoration is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund's 'Parks for People' programme and should be completed in 2010.

Every time I visit the park I see evidence of progress being made, and the orange tape, netting and barriers move around a bit more. Today's photo shows the roofline of one of the stone shelters at the end of the main promenade, which has been cleaned and repaired. The snow covering made an intriguing textural pattern.


  1. That's a clever shot, I like it.

  2. Snowy scenes are marvellous for taking photos! We have had snow on the other side of the Pennines as well and I have been out taking photos for my blog.

  3. Excellent composition. Love all the textures. Great work.
