10. Aire valley view


This panorama shows how Salts Mill dominates this part of the Aire valley.  If you click on the photo you should be able make it bigger to see more detail. 1 and 2 are the mill chimneys (Salts Mill and the New Mill) and 3 marks the domed tower of the church, Saltaire URC. Behind the mill you can see the village of Saltaire, set out in a neat grid pattern.

  1. And if you look a little left of the picture, and squint, and the weather is clear, and if there were no houses in-between .... you would be able to see our house.

  3. I just want to know if Mr. Thornton is still there. ;-)
    I didn't know that anything in England was set out in a grid pattern. ;-)
    (and I'm not complaining. You know I adore the English countryside)♥
