Sedbergh Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Yorkshire Dales...








The historic Norman market town of Sedbergh has a long tradition of hand-knitting and a public school that dates back as far as 1525.


It is the only village in picturesque Dentdale and lies at a point where four valleys converge.


Dominating the area is Whernside, the highest fell in the National Park, and the spectacular Howgill Fells which, unlike other rocks in the Dales, are smooth and rounded.
