Saltaire is remarkable - a complete Victorian village built all in one go by wool baron Sir Titus Salt to house his textile workers. The development achieved World Heritage status in 2001. A ten-minute stroll along the canal from the village will bring you to Hirst Wood Lock and the seven-arch aqueduct over the River Aire.
