SedberghThe town, famous for its independent school and for being one of Britain's leading 'Book Towns', enjoys an enviable position under the massive backdrop of the Howgill Fells, a magnificent area of rolling hills and open common land which is a walker's paradise.

The stone-built market town has a twelfth century Norman church to explore, as well as Castlehaw, the site of an early motte and bailey castle. East of the town, former woollen mill Farfield Mill built in 1837 now houses an Arts and Heritage Centre with craft studios, Weaver's Café and shop, exhibitions and demonstrations of cloth weaving. Sedbergh School was founded in 1525 and has left its mark on the town in the shape of some wonderful buildings, such as the eighteenth century School Library.

Walks may include following the Dales Way downstream along the riverside towards Brigflatts, a seventeenth century pioneering Quaker Meeting House. Or could cross the river Rawthey into Dentdale. Or perhaps make an ascent of one or more of the Howgill Fells for wonderful views and quiet solitude.
