Bridge hotels listed below are either in the town or we have
given a rough guide as to how far they are from Sowerby Bridge.
We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation.
Sowerby Bridge has been a crossing
point on the Calder and Ryburn rivers since the Middle Ages.
Domestic weaving in the hilltop villages of Sowerby and Norland
gave way to the building of large water powered mills by the
River Calder. Transportation was provided by the building of
roads, canals and later, the railway. Most of the mills are now
closed, many are now engineering premises or converted into living
accommodation. The canal, once closed and partly filled in, has
now been re-opened as a leisure waterway. Sowerby Bridge can
be found on the A58, the former main route between Yorkshire
and Lancashire, about 3 miles south west of Halifax. Also see
