Summervell Garden

This project is sited along the banks of the River Kent, Kendal, situated on the Waterside between Abbot Hall and Lowther Street, it was completed in 2008/9.

The steps have been built using the old limestone from the 'K Shoes' factory on Lound Rd, now the new shopping and housing development currently under construction.

The project had been commissioned by Kendal Town Council with assistance from Kendal Civic Society and the funding came from the William H Summervell Trust Fund.  Continental Landscapes were the main contractors and had asked us to carry out the walling, laying of the reclaimed setts and the laying of the tarmac.

This area prior to the work commencing had just been a grassy bank with no purpose.  Now there is a great new seating area offering respite for some tired legs and a great position to enjoy the River Kent and look across towards Kendal Castle.
