Salts Mill & 1853 Gallery Jan 26, 2017
The Salts textile Mills opened in 1853 and closed when the textile industry declined during the 20th Century. It was subsequently bought by Jonathan Silver (1949-1997), an entrepreneur, who created the 1853 gallery, and a successful regeneration of the Mills space took place.

Today the Salts Mills have been converted in business units including Bradford Primary Care Trust (NHS); shops; cafes/restaurants and the 1853 Gallery where the Bradford artist, David Hockney, usually holds exhibitions. I thoroughly enjoyed browsing and having a drink in one of the cafes there and being inside an old mill. A new Visitors Information Centre has recently opened at the front of the mill. The Salts Mill opens seven days a week usually from 10.00am to 6.00pm (please check the website for exact timings).

We made a return visit to Salts Mills in January 2017 for drink/comfort stop on our canal walk between Rodley and Crossflatts. We went to the Cafe In The Opera and I enjoyed a lovely hot chocolate and my Dad had a coffee. The Cafe In The Opera is a pleasant cafe which links with exhibits of Hockney's works.
