The Auld Grey Town of Kendal is anything but dull! Renowned for many things, including the mint cake favoured by expeditions to Everest and K2, Kendal is a great place to live and work as well an ideal base for exploring The Lakes, Lancashire and Yorkshire.
Close to junction 36 of the M6, Kendal has a dedicated following of visitors flocking to the town for a short breaks, to attend events at The Brewery Arts Centre or as a stopover en-route to the North Lakes or beyond. The largely pedestrianised high street and cobbled alleys and yards are well supported by locals and visitors alike, the regular indoor and outdoor markets continuing to thrive. Take a walk along the River Kent or a gentle amble up to Kendal Castle and view this interesting town from a different perspective and spot the Civic Society plaques depicting many interesting facts about the town and its heritage.
A great place to live and work with excellent schooling for all key stages and further education, Kendal is well served by public transport and local road networks. The West Coast Main Line from Oxenholme provides access into the capital in less than 3 hours whilst Manchester Airport can be reached in just over an hour by car.
