Area Information


Sedbergh is England’s book town nearly all the shops, restaurants and cafés have a selection of books somewhere on the premises as does the Tourist Information office. Even the bus-stop near the market square has some bookshelves. Sedbergh is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, but it’s also in Cumbria and has a Lancaster postcode. The Lake District is nearer and more accessible than the more well-known parts of the Yorkshire Dales, however.
