Dear History Club Members, Hi. The date of the next meeting of Saltaire History Club is Thurs 2 June, 7 – 9 PM, in the Resource Centre of Shipley College’s Exhibition Rd building (Post Code BD18 3JW – see end of message for further directions).

The subject of the meeting will be Milner Field Farm & Estate:

A History of Milner Field Farm & a Tragic Drowning in Milner Field Lake is the title of a presentation by Bingley local historian Alan Cattell. Following Alan’s presentation, the current Farmer of Milner Field Farm, David Downs, will describe his family’s 100+ years of involvement at the Farm, and the current planning controversy regarding its future.

All welcome (and it’s still free)!

Hope very much that you can join us for what promises to be an extremely topical discussion.  

Best wishes
Dave (Shaw) for Saltaire History Club
