Milner Field - The Lost Country House of Titus Salt Jnr
The story of a mill owners mansion- one of the most splendid houses of the Victorian age – and how it fell into decline before being demolished.
Milner Field was built by Titus Salt Jr, son of Saltaire founder Sir Titus Salt, with no expense spared - before a run of misfortune befell both him and subsequent owners of the house.
This book contains fascinating images of the house and grounds, from its sumptuous Victorian interiors, the estate viewed from the air, to the privileged lifestyle enjoyed there as late as the 1920s.
An appendix contains stories of two other long-vanished mansions with Salt connections - Charles Stead's, The Knoll, and Edward Salt's Ferniehurst at Baildon. There’s also a study of Milner Field's kitchen gardens and the landscape designs of Robert Marnock, one of the most important nineteenth century exponents of the 'gardenesque' style.
