Lording it


In the wintry sunshine, Sir Titus Salt's statue presides over the long promenade terrace in Roberts Park, Saltaire. The statue was erected in 1903 to commemorate the centenary of his birth, and the 50th anniversary of the opening of Salts Mill. The plinth has an angora goat on this side and on the other side an alpaca, the two animals from whose fleece the wool baron, Sir Titus, made his fortune.

  5. He looks quite proud to be standing up there and surveying all that he created. (And it seems that the weather in Saltaire is pretty nice at the moment.)
