Hidden corner

This charming corner is normally hidden from view, except to students and staff at Shipley College.  It's tucked away in the gardens attached to the Exhibition Building. These gardens and some of the allotments across the road are tended by students studying horticulture. (It's where the TV celebrity gardener and novelist Alan Titchmarsh began his training.)  The gardens were open to the public during the recent Saltaire Festival's Open Gardens weekend. In the background is the long south frontage of Salts Mill.


  1. I think it's time to enroll as a student. I wonder if there's an age limit.

    1. No, I don't think so. I just enrolled for an evening class on Local History - but sadly they are cancelling it before it starts, since not enough people have signed up. At one time evening classes used to be subsidised and very affordable, but they are pretty expensive now so I think that puts people off.

  2. Very inviting indeed...

  3. It is a pleasant place to sit.
