The Calder and Hebble Navigation was originally designed by John Smeaton and then completed by James Brindlay. It runs from the Wakefield section of the Aire and Calder, and travels west to Sowerby Bridge and is 24 miles long. The concept around building the canal was discussed and passed as long ago as 1758.
