In footsteps of Daniel Defoe
The Salt Warehouse and No. 4 Warehouse, both part of the recent restoration project at Sowerby Bridge Wharf, were built with a canal arm leading inside, forming an interior dock which meant that goods could be loaded and unloaded under cover.
The present St Bartholomew’s Church in Ripponden is actually the fourth church on the same site. The second was washed away by a flood that was so severe villagers found a coffin up a tree.
