Kendal is a market town and civil parish inside the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England. It is 40 miles south of Carlisle, on the River Kent. Historically a part of Westmorland, Kendal today is known fundamentally as a centre for tourism, as the home of the yummy Kendal mint cake, and as a manufacturer of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff. Its buildings, mostly constructed with the local grey limestone, have earned it the nickname “the Auld Grey Town”.
Kendal stands on the River Kent, enclosed by low hills. It is also near the Lake District National Park. When the National Park was created in 1951 the boundary was intentionally shaped to exclude Kendal. Although a relatively little town, it is an important commercial centre for a wide area thanks to its rural location. It is warmly referred to as “The Gateway to The Lakes”.
Kendal is around 8 miles from the M6 motorway and is bypassed on the west by the A591 road, connecting it to Windermere, Keswick and the A590 leading to Barrow, as well as being the terminus of the A65 road to Kirkby Lonsdale and a destination on the A6 road to Penrith.

The switch-on ceremony provides charities, school choirs, street performers and retailers with an opportunity to appeal to our Saturday afternoon shoppers.
