Saltford has a very nice church: the Church of St Mary's. It is a Norman church which dates back to the 12th century and is a Grade II listed building.
Another important building in Saltford is the Manor House. It dates from around 1160. It was found by a survey by Country Life magazine to be the oldest continuously occupied house in England. Architectural historian John Goodall believes the house has details, particularly in the ornate windows, which date it securely to before 1150, and probably to around 1148, the completion date of Hereford Cathedral, which has some similarities.
