In this follow up to the highly successful Kendal Through Time, author Norman Holloway showcases the town's countless attractions, using a mixture of old and new images to awaken fond memories in those who know and love this historic town. Chief among Kendal's unique points of interest are the shoe company that was at one time the only business registered with the single-letter trademark of 'K'; its two castles - the well-known Kendal Castle, and the much earlier structure of Castle Howe; Kendal walker and author Alfred Wainwright, who wrote the book Three Westmorland Rivers about the Kent, Sprint and Mint; the four football clubs whose names are all prefixed by Kendal - Town, United, County and Celtic; the parish church in Kirkland, which is one of the widest in England and has a total of five aisles; and six tenterhooks and six teasels inserted into the four quadrants on the town's coat of arms. Kendal Through the Ages is a fascinating and informative journey through the town, exploring its most-loved sites while also introducing the reader to its lesser-known gems.
