A small rural town, Sedbergh is partly protected by the Howgill Fells.

It is famous for its public school founded in 1525. One of its 19th century teachers was H.W. Fowler whose ‘Dictionary of Modern English Usage’ has given him a degree of immortality.

The town’s stunning parish church of St Andrew is of Norman origin. Surrounding the town are spectacular vistas.
