Another Grand Day Out

Today I went on a trip to Shipley in Yorkshire, there was just a few of us on one of the villages minibus'.  We were stopped off at Salts Mill, a Grade II former textile mill, which has been turned into shops, museum and gallery. 

This place is beautiful inside with its lofty ceilings and  light flooding through. A lot of the original features still intact.

Some fab books and calendars on this table, Love the little black dress calendar on the left.

My friend thinks they may have  kept the cotton spools here in these slots, any ideas?

Some beautiful pieces of pottery and art work.

An exhibition on costume design by local students.  A walk along the canal afterwards (we got lost and nearly missed the bus home), and visits to various craft and fabric shops.  More of that to come.   Yes a very pleasant day out.
