A history club is set to bring the ghosts of Saltaire’s past to life during a unique event.

Saltaire History Club will dive into village life during the 1800s and 1900s through accounts from former residents.

Club secretary Les Brooks will play Henry Stolworthy (1839 to 1927), who spent decades working in Salts Mill and was superintendent of its fire brigade.

John Unwin will reveal secrets from his diary of everyday life while Harold Kendall will talk about how he became overlooker at the mill and Saltaire’s Technical School.

Theresa Schistal, who came to Salts Mill from Austria soon after World War Two, and a current Saltaire resident who photographed the closure of Salts Mill, will also make an appearance.

Mr Brooks told the Telegraph & Argus: “It’s open to everyone, it’s free, come along.”

The event will start from 7.30pm on December 8, 2022, in the Learning Resource Centre at Shipley College’s Exhibition Building, Exhibition Road, Saltaire.
