During our week away in the Lake District we spent a day in Kendal and found a few places we had never before noticed during our many previous trips there.
I resisted buying any of the delectable treats in the old Chocolate House, but I did partake of a free sample!
Dr Mannings Yard
Through the alley to this quaint old corner...
The old shop where I bought some Kendal Mint Cake for my son in law, who loves it.
I loved this shop sign,
We always visit Farrer's for coffee and cake ..They roast and grind their own coffee blends and sell specialty teas so it is always worth a visit.
The ancient Holy Trinity church
William's Wool Shop, in the main street, was a cosy haven for knitters with comfy sofas and nooks and crannies.
I just wanted it all and I'm sure I'd be visiting every week if it was nearer to home.
See the pea green yarn on the shelf?... some of it is now mine. It is delicious Merino wool, cashmere and silk mix and so soft!
I now have the pattern and wool for the lovely shawl hanging on the beam
We had a wonderful meal in this canal side pub restaurant, the Canal Turn. I've got to admit that the pint of local bitter is all mine and DH, the driver, had the half pint of lemonade shandy!
Next post...... the Pencil Museum.
