Nestling in the foot of the Howgill fells and dating back to the Roman times, Sedbergh is a market town full of character with cobbled yards and fascinating houses, some of which bear the hallmarks of the town's old knitting industry. With its old world atmosphere there is a good range of places to eat and shop, including a factory shop selling quality outdoor clothing made in Sedbergh, and a local pottery. A rewarding short walk takes you to Cautley Spout near Sedbergh whose cascades fall 200m in less than 0.25 miles. With a host of quiet country lanes, the area is ideal for cycling for the whole family. Sedbergh is famous for its public school, set in magnificent parkland on the edge of the town. There is a fine Norman church, St Andrews, and overlooking the town is the site of Castlehow, an ancient motte and bailey castle built to repel the Scottish hordes. George Fox, founder of the Quakers, preached both in the church year of St Andrews, and in the nearby Brigflatts Meeting House, which dates from 1675.
