View of Roberts Park from an original oil painting by a local artist David Starley.

Roberts Park is a 14 acres (5.7 ha) public urban park in Baildon, West Yorkshire.
Saltaire Village  is named after Sir Titus Salt who built a textile mill, known as Salts Mill and this village on the River Aire in 1853. Salt moved his entire business from Bradford to this site partly to provide better arrangements for his workers and partly to site his large textile mill by a canal and a railway.
