Walkers above Sedbergh

Sedbergh Gateway – for Walkers and Cyclists in the western Yorkshire Dales


Guided Walks from Sedbergh, and Dent and Garsdale Stations

The Sedbergh Area Walking and Cycling Group is organising some guided walks around Sedbergh, the Howgills, Dentdale and Garsdale.

The walks will be of between 8 and 10 miles in length and they will begin and end at the Information and Book Centre at 72 Main Street, Sedbergh, LA10 5AD. They will all start at 10am.

Visitors are very welcome on these walks, but we are also trying to guage if there is sufficient interest among local people to support an ongoing programme of regular walks in the future.
