  Remembering Denys Salt

Sir Titus Salt's great grandson, Denys Salt, died on 21 December, 2014, aged 96 years. He was a lovely, charming and intelligent man, and a great support. He will be sorely missed.

Dave Shaw, a long-time friend of Denys writes: "Denys who was 96, was a lovely, wonderful man, as all who met him here in Saltaire will testify. He was, effectively, the Salt family historian and had encouraged the learning of Saltaire history for more than 50 years. His loss will be keenly felt by many.
A very sad start to Christmas week, but a life to be greatly celebrated, not least for the example Denys set us all."
