Milner Field, nr Saltaire, Yorkshire. By Thomas Harris, c1873, for Titus Salt jnr, son of the industrialist and philanthropist. Salt died in the house of a heart attack, aged 44; after subsequent owners suffered ill luck and an abnormal death count, the house gained a sinister reputation. Unsaleable, it was abandoned, fell into ruin and was demolished in the 1950s. The cellars, piles of rubble and remnants of floors and walls still exist in a tangle of forest outside Saltaire.
