Main Street in Dent is to be closed for up to five days from Monday 21st January. This follows the closure of the Dent to Sedbergh road near Craggs Farm earlier this week.
Further disruption is expected whilst United Utilities connects Sunnyside to mains water. The official diversion for both closures is a 35-mile detour via Hawes and Sedbergh.
Locals however are likely to use Hall Lane (“Flood Lane”) to get from one side of the village to the other.
This narrow road has few places where vehicles can pass, is popular with walkers, particularly dog walkers and, as the local name suggests, is liable to flooding during wet weather.
