Roberts Park

Grade II Listed

Roberts Park is situated in the world heritage site of Saltaire near Bradford, West Yorkshire. The park has recently been restored to its glorious Victorian design and Aura Conservation were on site from June 2009 to May 2010.

The works entailed rebuilding of almost 500m of boundary walls to introduce new backstays and replacement of missing and defective copings. The lodges, pavilion and main entrance gates have also been painstakingly restored.

In the centre of the park lies the Grade II Listed Half Moon Pavilion originally built by Sir Titus Salt for the use of Saltaire Cricket Club. The Pavilion now houses the Half Moon Café after a full sympathetic clean and restoration works including the installation of new stone steps and ramps. Situated on top of the Half Moon Cafe is a semi circular viewing platform of stone balustrade and adjacent to this platform on the main promenade the statue of Sir Titus Salt which also underwent restoration works. In addition to the conservation works a new bandstand was erected with the natural stone base, paving and ramps designed and installed by Aura Conservation.
