Saltaire is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. The site is a complete and well-preserved industrial village of the second half of the 19th century. It has textile mills, public buildings and workers' housing.
In time, the new village grew to over 800 dwellings.
In 1933, the village was sold the Bradford Property Trust. The mill closed down in 1986.
In 2001, Saltaire was named a World Heritage Site.
