About

Saltaire Angling Association is a small Angling Club ~400 members based in West Yorkshire, England at the World Heritage Site of Saltaire Village. Which was developed by Sir Titus Salt from as a model village for the workers in his new mills from 1853. The angling club was founded by some of his workers in 1867 (the same year as Bradford Amateur Rowing Club) and the fishing rights initially granted by Sir Titus Salt were at a peppercorn rent of 1d per annum (1/240 of a GBP)

Much of the left bank of the upper lengths abuts the estate surrounding his former mansion. One of the weirs impounds water that was used by his mills.
