Salts Mill

Salt's Mill (or Salts Mill) is an art gallery, shopping and restaurant complex located in Saltaire, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. It is inside a former mill, built by Sir Titus Salt. The 1853 gallery takes its name from the date of the building in which it is housed. Salt's Mill displays many paintings by local artist David Hockney, and also provides offices for Pace plc.

When completed, it was the largest industrial building in the world by total floor area. It is a grade II* listed building.[1] The mill closed in 1986, with renovation beginning the following year.

The spellings Salts Mill and Salt's Mill (that is, with and without an apostrophe) are both commonly used. The former is used consistently by the Salts Mill website[2] and the Saltaire Village website;[3] the latter by Visit Bradford from the official Bradford Tourist Information service.[4] Both versions are used in the UNESCO World Heritage documentation.[5]
