Terrain and disabled access

Please note that this information is meant to be helpful, not definitive. If any information needs correction, please get in touch.

The streets of Saltaire are not very wheelchair friendly – the Village site rises, steeply in parts, from the river and canal. Albert Terrace is cobbled (and if you alight from the Leeds or Bradford to Skipton train, you will encounter these cobbles). There is also a patch of cobbles outside the entrance to Salts Mill, on Victoria Road. Otherwise, the roads have a smooth surface.

Trees planted on Victoria Road have caused pavements to be uneven in places. All the pavements around Saltaire are flagged, some uneven, so please take care.

The United Reformed Church
The the United Reformed Church does not have disabled access. The Church is accessed by a number of stone steps (with handrail). The Church also serves refreshments in the basement, which can be accessed on the right side (one step).

Salts Mill
Salts Mill has disabled access. At the south side of the building, there is a ramp. At the north side, there is a lift. Once inside, there's one small lift to serve the building. Salts Mill is spacious. Its floors are flagged stone.

Victoria Hall
Victoria Hall has disabled access, though you may have to enquire first, as it is a side entrance. The toilets are located down a flight of stairs. There is no lift.

Resting places
There are benches to sit on outside Victoria Hall on Victoria Road and within the grounds of the Almshouses (also on Victoria Road - walk uphill and cross the junction of Saltaire Road). There are also benches in Roberts Park (walk downhill and cross the River Aire via the footbridge) which is a great place to picnic and perhaps watch some cricket.
