The image top is from the Bridge at the south side of Kendal over the River Kent. There is a scenic River Walk along the left side all the way to the other side of the Town centre.

The road to the left runs right through Kendal centre for about two miles. This road is a number of streets such as Kirkland, Highgate, Stricklandgate, and Windermere Road.

The Church complex here is the Kendal Parish Church, one of the most impressive Churches in Cumbria.

The ruins of Kendal Castle are up to the right in this image.

The earliest parts of Kendal Parish Church were built in the 1200s. This is an extremely scenic area with a number of old buildings. The interior of this Church is impressive, as is the rear view from the River, showing how wide it is. History

The image right is of the main road running through Kendal, at the part named Highgate. This is a long shopping street, with the Town Hall with a Clock the most notable building.

The main street has a Pedestrian only area. The one way system in Kendal directs most of the traffic down to the Riverside, where most of the Car Parking is.

The Kendal Market Place is also on the main street with a Monument. The main road ahead is named Stricklandgate, with Windermere Road further on.

Westmorland Shopping Centre is down to the right at the Market. There is a large underground car park below the shopping centre.

The Street Market here is normally held on Wednesday and Saturday.

New Road down by the Riverside is where most of the Car Parking is situated.

Stramongate Bridge in Kendal is at the north side of the River Walk. The road to the left of the Bridge leads back up to the main street, close to the Market Place.

This is said to be a good spot to watch Salmon and Trout leaping whilst traveling up-river. Late Summer into Autumn is said to be the best time of year for watching the fish.
