Sedbergh School, Yorkshire 1930

Sporting pursuits and stunning scenery feature in this glimpse of life at Sedbergh School and the nearby town, now in Cumbria

Amateur film 1930 8 mins Silent


The boys at the historic Sedbergh School keep very active in this amateur film, likely made by a former pupil. The cricket pavilion and school buildings are on view and students can be seen taking part in the annual Wilson Run. There is a poignant pause at the cloisters, a monument to those lost in WWI. In the stunning setting of the western Yorkshire Dales, this film is a wonderful insight into life at a private school in the interwar period.
