Sowerby Bridge Wharf is a group of Georgian warehouses and other buildings surrounding a canal basin where two waterways meet. The Calder & Hebble Navigation comes from Wakefield, and the Rochdale Canal crosses the Pennines to Manchester. Together, they formed one of three routes across the Pennines. These waterways transformed the freight industry, because a horse could move so much more cargo in a boat than it could carry on its back or pull in a cart. The canals were built at the same time as an even larger network of new roads, so that carts could be used to distribute goods from inland ports like Sowerby Bridge. The Wharf was for 150 years a busy transfer point for goods to be carried by water all over the world.
The canal age was short, seventy years or so. Then the railways brought their own revolution, and time passed by Sowerby Bridge Wharf, till in the 1970s it began to be revived. With huge investment from public and private sources, the buildings were repaired and adapted for new uses, so that today more people work at the Wharf than did when the canal was in its first heyday.
