Standing proud


The distinctive outline of Sir Titus Salt's statue in Roberts Park, Saltaire.  The statue was erected in 1903 to commemorate the centenary of Salt's birth and the 50th anniversary of the opening of Salts Mill.  To see the detail of the statue, click here.

  1. As much as I admire Sir Titus - and indeed I do - I always have a feeling that there was an element of black and white about him, a certainty of vision which he imposed on those around him. Perhaps it was a price worth paying, perhaps I am still sulking because there are no pubs in Saltaire.

  2. I've never been to Saltaire, but I think, perhaps next year, it could be on our list.

  5. Beautifully captured with the light behind his head and the colour of the sky is exquisite.
