Location

Our Meeting House can be found on Stramongate, Kendal LA9 4BH. It is near the centre of the town and a few minutes’ walk from both the Bus Station and Kendal Railway Station.  If you arrive by car, the building is on the one- way system through Kendal following signs on the A65 to Kirkby Lonsdale and the M6. If you miss the car park entrance, you can continue turning right round the block for a second attempt!

History

This Quaker Meeting is based in what is called ‘1652 country’; the area of the North-West of England in which George Fox and others established Quakerism. The Meeting House is based near the centre of what has historically been a Quaker town.  For a brief history of our Meeting House click here. (link to brief history section*)

Today Kendal Quaker Meeting is a medium sized, caring and outward looking worshipping Quaker community.

We share our Meeting House with the Quaker Tapestry Museum. Information about this museum can be found at www.quaker–tapestry.co.uk.

The Meeting House can be visited during the museum’s opening hours from Tuesday to Saturday and of course for worship on Sundays.
