New Mill

New Mill by the river Aire, Saltaire

Saltaire’s New Mill is often mistakenly called Salt’s Mill, but it was built 15 years later, and sits across the Leeds–Liverpool canal from it. It was recently converted to NHS offices and apartments. The weir, in the foreground, is on the river Aire, and you can often see a grey heron wading about in the rushing water.

This is the view from Roberts Park, which was recently landscaped, and whose buildings were recently renovated, with a grant from the lottery fund. I cropped the photo just above the abandoned bicycle, so as not to spoil the charm intended by the architect.
