The Port and town of Goole was created in 1826 by the Aire and Calder Canal Navigation Company to provide labour for the transhipment of goods at the point where the Aire and Calder navigation intersected with the River Ouse / Humber estuary. At that time the principal thoroughfare in Goole was Aire Street with early developments being the (now) Grade II* Lowther Hotel and the original shipping offices and court buildings.
Today Aire Street is somewhat removed from Goole town centre and in need of some assistance to reinstate its former glory. The upcoming town bicentenary in 2026 has sparked significant local interest in re-interpreting the heritage assets of Aire Street and in re-establishing a stronger connection between the town centre and the waterside.
Goole 2026 Coastal Communities Team will focus on the connection between the town centre and the waterside with a particular focus on the historically significant connection and heritage assets of Aire Street.
