Sowerby Bridge Wharf, Warehouse Nos. 1 and 2

Caption :- Warehouse number one appears to occupy the site originally occupied by Causey warehouse, the first warehouse to be erected at the Sowerby Bridge Wharf when it was completed in 1770. The present warehouses 1 & 2 bear no resemblance to other Calder and Hebble Navigation Company warehouses erected prior to 1800 and may have been substantially or completely rebuilt as part of an enlargement scheme of 1837, now minus a later canopy erected pre 1850.
