I’m splitting the last day up into two posts otherwise it will be photo overload !
After saying goodbye to our lovely Holiday Inn Express outside York we set off home . We had planned on two stops the first one being Saltaire near Bradford a model village and World Heritage Site devised and designed by Titus Groan in the nineteenth century an age where forward thinking and philanthropy went hand in hand. The wealthy and often Quaker families poured their ingenuity into making life better for the working class. Some of Britain’s largest institutions were founded on Quaker principles. Elizabeth Fry ( English prison reformer),  George Cadbury (chocolate maker), Cyrus Clark ( Clark’s shoes), Joseph Rowntree (chocolate maker) and so on.
We didn’t have much time and the weather was not kind so we settled just taking a few shots and having a cup of coffee in Salts Mill and visiting probably one of the best books shops I have ever visited and with great use of original artefacts  , I could have made a serious dent in the credit card. Salts Mill has been beautifully restored and also houses a wonderful collection of David Hockney paintings.
Next week will be the last instalment,  thanks Helen for hosting this link up

  1. I must get over to the mills – they sound just the sort of place I like to visit – and the Hockney exhibition is an added bonus. Sorry the weather wasn't so good – the area is totally different when the sun shines! I take it you didn't make it as far as Whitby? Thanks for linking!

  2. I can see it all now, right down to the wonderful book store. I love your digi layout. I think it's one of my favorites. Also…David Hockney was one of my favorite artists when I was in art school.xoxo
