About Us

The Navigation Inn dates back to the 15th century and was the site of the local Moot Hall - Some of the period features still remain in place today with a magnificent 16th century Fireplace being the focus of one of the main dining areas.

The Pub sits in the quiet outskirts of the town of Sowerby Bridge with views to the surrounding hills and the banks of the Hebble and Calder Canal. The towpath runs to the side of the pub and there is a mooring for boats 1 minute away. The outside of Pub includes a South facing Beer Garden with seating and grassed areas to the rear. There is a large private car park for easy access.
