Back in Saltaire again.... and though it was gathering up for rain, those are not extra black storm clouds at the very top of the picture - just a dirty window! I took this from the staircase on the top floor of Salts Mill. That level is not usually open to the public so maybe they don't clean these windows very often! Nevertheless I liked the view from right up here. It's interesting how you get a different sense of a place from higher up. We are looking out over Victoria Road, towards the railway station on the left. The building in the centre is the old Dining Hall, where the mill workers used to get their meals (now part of Shipley College). Behind you can see the church, still shrouded in plastic and metalwork as the canopy repairs continue. You can also see the edge of Saltaire's residential area on the extreme left. Those houses are on Albert Terrace and were among the earliest houses in the village to be completed, in 1854.
