Sedbergh and the Howgill Fells.

The sleepy small town of Sedbergh nestles at the foot of the Howgill Fells in the north western corner of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Although associated with the Yorkshire Dales, Sedbergh lies in Cumbria, a result of the county boundary changes in 1974 which took this West Riding town, along with Westmoorland, Cumberland and a part of Lancashire into the new county.

Even on a Saturday afternoon, when other towns are bustling with shoppers, Sedbergh is quiet and relaxed. There are three pubs here, the Bull Hotel, the Dalesman and the Red Lion.

You are never far from open space in this small town. The Howgill Fells are well within walking distance to the north and nearby are ample playing fields and rugby pitches. Caultley Spout is one of the Yorkshire Dales' classic waterfalls in the Howgill Fells.
