Just a few miles across the M6 from Kendal, the old market town of Sedbergh developed at the confluence of four rivers in the western Yorkshire Dales but close to the eastern fells of the Lake District. It has characterful cobbled streets and historic houses, some of which demonstrate the old woollen trades that caused the area to thrive. Sedbergh Book Town, was set up in 2003 to develop businesses involved in books and other publications. Sedbergh already had a printer's finisher (book maker), writers and several book selling businesses. More bookshops have opened and, in 2006, Sedbergh was officially recognised as England's Booktown. There are now three official Booktowns in the United Kingdom, Hay-on-Wye (where it all started) in Wales, Wigtown in Scotland and Sedbergh in England. Sedburgh also has a well known public school and the oldest Quaker Meeting House in the north of England. There are some b&bs (bed and breakfast) establishments and guesthouses in or near Sedbergh and nearby Dent, and also some inns and hotels.
