- Sedbergh is a special place. It's snuggled away on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park among the Howgills which Wainwright described as looking like 'sleeping elephants'.
- It's one of those places that initially appears as a small market town straddling Yorkshire and Cumbria, secure in its place as a useful stopping off point on longer journeys. Spend a little longer and you'll soon become beguiled by its charms which gently unfold, layer by layer.
