A debate on whether Saltaire’s historic houses are still fit for the modern world is being held this December.

The Saltaire History Club will dive into how Sir Titus Salt faced different challenges when building his Victorian workers’ village.

The philanthropist found a number of solutions to the problems of yesteryear. 

Now the group of history lovers will ask how those same houses could be made better for residents in the 21st Century.

The session will be led by James Roberts and supported by Les Brook.

The club will also welcome special guest and architect Andrew Gardner.

People are invited to contribute their views to the debate.

The event is taking place in the lounge of Saltaire Methodist Church, Saltaire Road, from 7.30pm on Thursday, December 7.
