Sowerby Bridge Local Board was one of the first to be established in this area. The first election was on 30 July 1856. One of the first tasks was to commission a report on the water supply, and this resulted in the construction of a reservoir at Cote Hill and water mains to serve, initially, 400 houses. The water works was opened on 17 August 1864.
