Closure of Millthrop bridge
Millthrop bridge near Sedbergh has been badly damaged by a Lorry. This has forced the closure of the main road from Sedbergh to Dent for the foreseeable future. There is no suitable alternative route for our buses, so we are forced to suspend services between Sedbergh and Dent until further notice. Our S1 service will terminate at Maryfell and our S3 and S5 services will terminate at Sedbergh Spar.
The buses have been purchased with grants from the Big Lottery Fund and the Garfield Weston Foundation, as well as from The Yorkshire Dales National Park Millennium Fund and the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Line.
Concessionary bus passes are accepted on all routes. Many buses connect with trains on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle railway line at Dent Station and Kirkby Stephen. This provides access to and from Dent, Sedbergh, the Howgills, Kendal and Kirkby Stephen and gives local residents and visitors the opportunity to visit Kendal, Carlisle, Appleby, Settle, Skipton, Leeds and more.
Why not come and enjoy a walk in our stunning landscape, lots of footpaths from gentle to strenuous? Alternatively, explore our distinctive villages and market towns such as Dent, Sedbergh and Kirkby Stephen.
