Stricklandgate House

Over the years, Many homes disappeared, mainly to make way for newer buildings, shops and hotels, but Kendal still has some marvellous historic buildings.

One of these, Stricklandgate House, which stands on the western side of the street, about halfway up, remains very little altered. It is an excellent example of an eighteenth-century town house.

The building has had many uses - as a bank, as a museum and, for a time, as the main offices of the former South Westmorland Rural District Council - but with so many - original features retained, the present owners sought to restore and conserve the architectural and historical heritage.
