A couple of centuries ago, the wharf area of Sowerby Bridge buzzed with industrialised activity. Can you picture it? The canal, after all, was the main route across the Pennines from Manchester and Manchester was home to the ship canal and numerous goods that were transported for miles across the sea. A certain building in the wharf area famously, ‘as it says on the tin’, housed all of the salt brought in from Cheshire, but the busy buzz of industrialization has given way to something I happen to enjoy writing about. That old salt building now houses The Salt Bar and Grill, a restaurant that serves up good cuisine and pays loving tribute to its historical home.
