From this half term, the Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry will be running an exhibition of old photographs and artefacts to shed light on a fascinating and unique part of Kendal’s history, the town’s “Yards”. The museum’s display will attempt to answer such questions as: What was life like the Yards? Who lived and worked there? How did they get their names?
There’s a collection of contemporary photographs of Kendal’s remaining Yards on the Visit Cumbria site here. They are a lovely part of this old town.
