One particular hidden gem to check out is the small village of Dent. Located south of Sedbergh, it is known for links with former Cambridge University Professor of Geology Adam Sedgewick. History here can be traced back into the Viking era and in the 18th century Dent became well known for knitted products. More details about the village can be found on the Yorkshire Dales National Park website.
The popular book town of Sedbergh has an estimated population of 6,000. St Andrews Church dates the area back into the 12th Century and it is thought that a market has been held here since then. However, evidence of Saxons, Vikings and Normans have also been found here.
Sedbergh sits on one of the most popular commercial trading routes through the Pennines and close to four rivers known for trade. A lot of the original buildings still stand today and there is still a strong community feel.
In the past Sedbergh was well know for its agriculture and wool industry. Locals working here produced a number of products traded across the UK, including socks and hats. The railway station was first opened in 1861, bringing more trading to the area. However, this closed in 1954 and has never been reopened.
