Saltaire and a trip down memory lane with my second cousin, David.

David takes us on a guided tour of the Victorian houses of Saltaire. The houses were built by Lockwood and Mawson between 1854 and1868.
A Netfix 6 part mini-series 'The English game' was being filmed in Saltaire village when we arrived. The series charts the origins of football.
