During Spring 1, Year 3 pupils enjoyed a fantastic guided walk around Saltaire. We began our journey in Saltaire’s United Reformed Church, where we met three wonderful actresses playing the role of staff employed by Sir Titus Salt. One was particularly entertaining and through the giggles we were able to recognise what life was like when Sir Titus was alive.
After some time inside the warmth of the church, we had to brave the freezing winds and rain showers to take a look at the village itself. We discovered historic information about the buildings and the type of people who would live in the different houses.
We came away from the trip very wet, but very enthused about our new knowledge of Saltaire and its importance as a World Heritage Site.
