Following on from the pictures I've posted over the last few days, here is a view of the formal promenade terrace in Roberts Park, Saltaire. Having the bandstand on one side and Sir Titus Salt's magnificent statue on the other, this is the heart of the newly-restored Park. It recalls the early days, in the 1870s, when Victorian ladies in their crinolines would walk up and down 'taking the air'. With plenty of benches (to make my dear friend Malyss happy!) and a wind-shelter at either end, the promenade also provides opportunity to sit and rest awhile and watch the world go by. If you need refreshment, the Half-Moon Café is down some steps to the left, overlooking the cricket pitch and river. You can see the tower of Salt's Mill beyond. (Oh yes, and there are plenty of litter bins too - all smartly painted - so please use those and don't litter up our park!)
