The Kendal office of Hackney & Leigh enjoys a prominent position on Stricklandgate at the heart of the historic market town of Kendal. The town’s unique blend of history, culture and shopping make it a very popular destination for visitors.

The office was opened in August 1982 by John Leigh & Derrick Hackney having been bought from Derrick’s father and uncle – D & J Hackney who since 1947 had run their own greengrocers business from the premises with some of the fruit and vegetables being grown at the rear on what is now the office car park. The office is constantly busy having both successful sales and lettings departments run buy a team of 8 long standing members of staff.

Local knowledge

Living in Kendal
Kendal is a historic market town situated in a valley on the banks of the River Kent just 8 miles from Morecambe Bay and stands at the entrance to one of the most beautiful parts of the country – the Lake District National Park. The town benefits from excellent regional and national connections, with the mainline railway station at Oxenholme on the outskirts of town – you can be in London in under 3 hours and the M6 is easily accessed from both Junction 36 & 37. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is also only a 20 minute-drive which makes Kendal a perfect base for walkers and sightseers alike. Many of the buildings in Kendal are Victorian and constructed in local limestone (giving rise to the epithet “the Auld Grey Town”), but there are much older buildings, particularly the “Yards” for which the town is justifiably famous. There are even the remains of a Norman Castle and the town’s history stretches back even further.
