Salts Mill (Shipley) Reviews
Newest Review: ... rolling parkland. We've been several times now as it offers a good mix of shopping and Arts to enjoy, and is fairly unique in scope and setting, offering an ideal day trip destination to take guests to. It can get a bit chilly inside the cavernous mill so be sure to grab a jacket! The basement level is taken up by a soft furnishings store with a Middle Eastern leaning - plenty of silks, cushions and chaises here, set amongst soft music and a relaxed ambience. The ground floor is mostly shopping, selling all the high quality art supplies and brushes that any budding artist could desire. The walls display some art work by Bradford born Dav... more

Salts Mill is a good way to get an injection of culture, pass a couple of hours on a rainy day or to pick up a gift or something for you that's just a little bit different.

The weather forecast for bank holiday was not looking good. Time to get my thinking cap on and come up with somewhere to take our visiting friends that would not be affected by the inclement weather. Then I remembered a recommendation by my sister; Salts Mill in Shipley, Yorkshire, about an hour's drive away. The mill is a thriving centre for art, industry and commerce and it all started with Jonathan Silver and the 1853 Gallery. The gallery so called because that was the year the Victorian Mill was originally opened for manufacturing fabrics. The mill closed down in 1986 and lay derelict for a year until bought by Silver. He opened the gallery to the public ... Read the complete review
