Coronavirus news - 27th March 2020

Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to close during the current coronavirus crisis. Firstly this is to protect our volunteers. Secondly we temporarily do not wish to encourage people to visit Sedbergh as extra people puts additional strain on local resources.

If you do need to contact someone please email and someone will get back to you.

Please stay local and keep safe. We look forward to seeing you when this is all over.

We aim to keep this information as up to date as possible but the Coronavirus situation is constantly changing and you should contact the establishment directly if you want more up to date information.
