16. Inside Saltaire's church


Because it's a Nonconformist chapel, there is no overt religious imagery inside the church, but nevertheless it is quite ornate and splendid, with the focus on the pulpit and below it the church organ.  There are fine ormolu and glass chandeliers and much detailing in the plasterwork and scagliola ornamentation, which resembles marble.
