Shipley is an historic West Yorkshire market town, 4 miles north of Bradford. The town is located on the River Aire and was shaped largely by the Industrial Revolution and growth of the textile industry. The eventual decline of this industry saw the demolition of many mills. Now, only Salts Mill and Victoria Mills remain and have been converted to other uses. The Victorian model village of Saltaire, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an Anchor Point of the European Route of Industrial Heritage, was planned by Sir Titus Salt for his workers. They manufactured alpaca and woollen cloth at his mill beside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The Salts Mill closed in 1986 and is now a gallery for the work of David Hockney, along with some shops, cafés and local businesses. Shipley has places to eat, pubs, a supermarket and other shops dotted around the pedestrianised market square and in the Arndale Centre. Shipley Open Market operates on a Monday, selling second-hand items and bric-a-brac. On a Friday and Saturday, a wide selection of market goods and fresh food products are sold. Shipley Glen is a local beauty spot and the Shipley Glen Tramway, built in 1895, still runs here at weekends.
