Saltaire United Reformed Church is a Grade I Listed Building and a unique example of Italianate religious architecture. The church was built in 1859 in the valley of the River Aire and faces Salts Mill, the Mausoleum built onto the church contains the remains of Sir Titus Salt and his family. In the centre of the photograph is one of two beautifully ornate ormolu and cut glass chandeliers that hang in the church.
