The Wharf

Sowerby Bridge Wharf is where two waterways meet on the edge of the Pennines. Once a major industrial centre, now trendy pubs and cafes occupy many of the old canal buildings.

Sowerby Bridge Wharf was a vital link in the chain of waterways stretching from the Humber to the Mersey. Here, cargo was transferred from long boats called Mersey flats to the shorter Yorkshire keels because they were too big for the locks on the Calder & Hebble Navigation.
