Initially called the People's Park or Saltaire Park, it was given to Shipley Urban District Council c.1910 and to the City of Bradford in 1920, then renamed Roberts Park. The current owner is Bradford Metropolitan District Council. The park is listed grade 2 (list entry 1001226).

Salts Mill :: SE1438

Salts Mill (sometimes Salt's Mill) is a Grade II listed building built in 1853. Titus Salt employed Lockwood & Mawson to design this textile mill which sits in the model village of Saltaire, built at the same time to house the mill's workers. Both were built on a greenfield site outside Shipley on the banks of the River Aire and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. It closed in 1986 and now houses many different businesses including an art gallery, a technology company and a café.
