Kendal is often described by two other names, one being 'The Auld Grey Town' and the other 'The Gateway to the Lakes'. One of the earliest indications of the town name was in Norman times when it was known as Kirk byre Ken dale (church town in Kent dale). The central area at that time was built up around the parish church and Kirkland; and on the southern outskirts there is an ancient marker stone bearing the carving of the name Kirby Kendal. This is a fascinating area, with its many old yards leading down to the River Kent. It has been home to such well known industries as Kendal Brown Snuff, Kendal Socks, K Shoes and Kendal Mint Cake; the first and last of these are still in production today. This unique selection of old and new images and informative captions will be essential reading for anyone who knows and loves this town.
