Art Deco in Kendal

Kendal is reasonably out of the way but it nevertheless has some Art Deco buildings.

This one is now a Home Bargains but looks as if it could once have been a Woolworths:-

There are nice curved swoops below the roofline. It’s a pity the windows’ eyes have been put out, though:-

Bodycare has “rule of three” in the windows and the roofline is decoish:-

It’s not surprising if a Burton’s is deco but in this one the main pointer is the company’s logo just below the roofline. The rest looks older than deco:-

Card Factory is just about deco. Is it the rendering – sadly now grey rather than white – or the roofline which gives it a deco feel?

Kendal

On the way back up from our Oswestry trip we stopped at Kendal in Cumbria, which lies in the valley of the River Kent.

This rather nice bridge straddles the river towards the town’s southern end:-

Close by and just up from the river is Kendal Parish Church, Church of the Holy Trinity:-

This angled vie wshows the building off to good effect:-
