Many thanks to Peill & Company Chartered Surveyors for facilitating this camera's location and to South Cumbria Rivers Trust for capitally funding its installation. The River Kent is a short river and one of the fastest flowing in the county of Cumbria in England. The river originates in hills surrounding Kentmere, and flows for around 20 miles into the north of Morecambe Bay, having passed through Kentmere, Staveley, Burneside, Kendal and Sedgwick on the way. The main fish found - and hence the target of anglers - are salmon and sea trout, brown trout. Kendal is listed in the Domesday Book as part of Yorkshire with the name Cherchbi. For many centuries it was called Kirkbie Kendal, meaning 'village with a church in the valley of the River Kent'. The earliest castle was a Norman motte and bailey (now located on the west side of the town) when the settlement went under the name of Kirkbie Strickland. Kendal is known for Kendal mint cake, a glucose-based type of confectionery reputedly discovered accidentally by Joseph Wiper during his search for a clear glacier mint.
