Nos 15,16 and 17, Back Lane in Sedbergh were once the accommodation and workshop of a wheelwright’s business established in 1799 by James Handley.

The workshop is attached to the right and rear of the cottage and has a large segmental-headed wagon doorway with board double doors with windows cut into them. Now  a bookshop.
