1028 GB - Saltaire (2001)

Brief Description

Saltaire, West Yorkshire, is a complete and well-preserved industrial village of the second half of the 19th century. Its textile mills, public buildings and workers' housing are built in a harmonious style of high architectural standards and the urban plan survives intact, giving a vivid impression of Victorian philanthropic paternalism.

索尔泰尔

西约克郡的索尔泰尔是保留完好的19世纪下半叶的工业城镇。这里的纺织厂、公共建筑和工人住宅风格和谐统一,建筑质量高超。城镇布局至今完整地保留着其原始风貌,生动再现了维多利亚时代慈善事业的家长式统治。
