Getting to know Saltaire


I first showed this plan of the World Heritage Site of Saltaire way back at the start of my blog in June 2009.  But I didn't have any readers then - and now I have lots ... my 100th Follower joined on Christmas Day, which made me happy.  I know there are also other regular readers who don't appear on any lists.  Anyway, I thought it might be interesting and useful to put up this street plan again.  It shows the broad layout of Saltaire, so that you can see how it all fits together and perhaps begin to locate and visualise my photos within the context of the rest of the village.  I think if you click the map it will enlarge to become more readable. The street plan actually belongs to an explanatory 'Guide and Heritage Trail' about Saltaire, produced for visitors by the Council's Visitor Information Centre.  I'm sure they won't mind me borrowing it. The latest Guide is downloadable from their website.

  1. Thanks, Jenny. The map enlarges well BTW :)

    And, CONGRATULATIONS to you on reaching 100 followers! I know you'll go from strength to strength, as your blog is always very interesting :) Maybe you'll even produce a book (or 3) from it one day!!!

  8. I am a very maps-globes-graphs oriented person, so it's very important to me to find a map of any town, village, city I visit. Thanks, Jenny.
