World Heritage Day 2018

It was a beautiful, warm, sunny, Spring day. There were masses of people enjoying Saltaire's Roberts Park. Check out, too, the four gorgeous magnolia trees on the Promenade, blooming late this year but happily (so far) unblemished by frost. Even someone official with a chain was there... though I'm not sure who he was! (I thought it would be the Lord Mayor of Bradford but it isn't.) (PS: Might be Baildon's mayor?)

In the bandstand, Hall Royd Brass Band were playing. I always love listening to a brass band in the bandstand. It is really the only music that can be heard without amplification. It just sounds so right and fitting.

The occasion was, of course, a celebration of Saltaire's UNESCO World Heritage Site status, to mark World Heritage Day 2018.


  1. It looks as if you enjoyed a glorious day - blue skies, blossom, and brass bands playing - perfect.

  2. Lucky to get such a good day at this time of year. Mayors and suchlike never seem to know what they are supposed to do at these events.

  3. Great looking day for an outdoor festival...not easy to plan such this early in the year! Love those magnolias, which seem to have blossoms before leaves.

  4. It looks like a perfect day for it!

  5. It seems you had an ideal day for it!
