Savile Town Wharf is a marina in Dewsbury with original 19th century buildings now occupied by the award-winning Leggers Inn and a new children’s play area.
Come for great views, peaceful surroundings, picnics, bike rides and walks. The wharf, initially constructed in the nineteenth century, is still a working boatyard but has much to offer members of the general public and cyclists, walkers and boaters will find a warm welcome. A coffe shop situated in an old stable block and the popular Leggers Inn which overlooks the wharf are well worth a visit. A variety of events are also held throughout the year including the well attended canal festival which sees large crowds attracted to Mill Street East.
Once the busy hub of transport in the area, Savile Town Wharf is steeped in history and tradition. Built in the nineteenth century, this beautiful stone building was once the stables that housed the working horses that pulled barges along the Calder & Hebble Navigation.
Under the watchful eye of Calder Valley Marine, the wharf has recently undergone sympathetic renovation with due regard for the heritage of its past, and is home for the main offices of Calder Valley Marine. It is also where you will find the award winning “Leggers Inn” and “Old Stables Coffee Shop”. This combination makes Savile Town Wharf the perfect destination for boaters, cyclists and walkers.
Equipped with slipway, the wharf has wet dock facilities together with hard standing and a well stocked chandlery for self fit out.
This makes Savile Town Wharf the perfect place to fit-out your dream sailaway, or to call in at the start or end of a seasons cruising for that all important maintenance.
