on Thursday 25th July
Once again our friends at the Wavertree Society have arranged a day outing across the Pennines. Our destination will be Saltaire, the village created by Sir Titus Salt in the mid-19th century for the employees of his woollen mill on the River Aire. The mill itself is now an art gallery featuring the work of Bradford-born David Hockney, and incorporates a shop, restaurant and café. The whole complex is designated as a World Heritage Site and draws visitors from far afield.

This visit is a very special one, as it will begin with an 'in costume' guided walk - the guides in Victorian costume, that is, not the participants - to introduce us to the village and the people who used to live there. To cover the cost of the coach and the guides we shall be selling tickets at £20 per person. (Admission to the Salts Mill gallery is free of charge).

If you wish to come on the trip, please email us
for further information. The coach will depart from outside the Black Bull at 9am on Thursday 25th July, and also pick up at Lake Road, Wavertree, at 9.15am.
