Hi. The next meeting of our Club will be held on Thurs 8 March – usual place, usual time:  Exhibition Building, Shipley College, Exhibition Road, BD18 3JW Shipley, 7 – 9 PM. We have a great agenda, with two talks by recognised researchers & writers on Saltaire’s wonderful history:
Colin Coates’ talk will be in two halves:-

A Street Study - an in depth look at the history of one of the streets in Saltaire

Ian Watson’s talk : “From Exhibition Rd to Baker St – the Evolution of some Salt Land”.
Fascinating accounts which will add to the knowledge of all concerned.
