KENDAL YARDS AND HISTORY

KENDAL YARDS AND HISTORY

Aimed at/grading: Easy

Duration/length: 1 ½ - 2 hours

The Yards of Kendal are one of the town’s most distinctive features. They are a characteristic portrayal of parts of Kendal’s unique history.  In days gone by they were a series of thriving little communities lined with cottages and workshops.  With the march of progress and the wholesale destruction during the slum clearances of the 1960s, their number has been drastically reduced to become little more than a tourist attraction.  Having said that, there is still life in the yards and they deserve more than a superficial inspection. This walk will take you down some of the more picturesque ones revealing their history.
