WHY IS SALTAIRE A WORLD HERITAGE SITE?
According to UNESCO (the United Nations Educational. Scientific and Cultural Organisation), 'Saltaire has outstanding universal value because it is an exceptionally complete and well-preserved industrial village of the second half of the 19th century.'
'Its textile mills, public buildings and workers' housing are built in a harmonious style of high architectural quality and the urban plan survives intact, giving a vivid impression of the philanthropic approach to industrial management.'
'Saltaire provided the model for similar developments, both in the UK and elsewhere including in the USA and at Crespi d'Adda in Italy, and exerted a major influence on the 'garden city' movement.'
