River Kent at Kendal, Cumbria

This evening, I am focusing on the sizable town of Kendal which is located in the Lake District area of England, (although some distance from the actual water) and relatively close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Kendal Town Centre, Cumbria, England

Kendal has a population of about 27,500 and sits on the banks of the River Kent. In the past wealth was generated from markets and wool. Today, there are various industries including Kendal Mint Cake manufacture and Snuff & Tobacco production.
