A History of Kendal, Paperback / softback Book

A History of Kendal Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The attractive Lakeland town of Kendal has achieved fame well beyond its modest size.

Who hasn't heard of Kendal Mint Cake, K Shoes or 'The Gateway to the Lakes'?

Although these are indeed all facets of Kendal and its past, they are but a small part of its long and varied history.

Written by renowned local historian Andrew White, The History of Kendal is a wonderfully readable, comprehensive account, beautifully illlustrated with a wide range of images.

From Roman times right up to date, the book reveals and assesses the events, industries, people and influences that have shaped the place we see today.

This lovely book epitomises exactly what local history should be: informative, accessible and attractive.

As such, it is certain to have universal appeal, and to be a classic for years to come.
