A group of ten walkers met at Levens Bridge for the regular Thursday walk. The walk started in the Levens hall deer park. No deer were on show, but the pleasant spring sunshine meant early stops to strip off excess layers.
Upon reaching Kendal we were treated, by one time resident Frank, to an impromptu tour of the town. Our guide enthusiastically gave a running commentary on the highlights, including the magnificent Arts Centre which provided a convenient lunch stop, the Obelisk, the castle, a number of the old wool yards the K Shoe factory, where Frank used to work, and finally the flat where Frank used to live and the laundrette where he used to take his washing!
