Report on Science and Technology Group Visit - Saltaire, Wednesday, 26 October 2011
Titus Salt - Philanthropist or very Astute business man? He made money out of the crumbs from his workers lunches, his workers personal waste, (now we know where the sayings "Taking the P***" and "S*** Stirring" comes from). He was ahead of his time in recycling and pollution control. Unless you have a guided tour of the village by one of his people in period costume, you have not had the full Saltaire Village experience. We received a warm welcome on a bright but chilly day and thoroughly enjoyed our walk around the streets and dip into Yorkshire industrial history.
