Kendal – The Kendal Klipper
The Kendal Klipper, a restored 1949 Leyland Tiger, operates a free service in Kendal.
South Lakeland District Council runs the bus for six weeks every summer in an attempt to encourage people to leave their cars at home.
The bus, driven by owner Will Hamer, appeared in the television series “Dr Findlay’s Casebook”, and “Strathblair”.
On board the bus is a `clippie’ to help passengers on and off, and to describe Kendal’s attractions en-route.
The service runs every half hour, starting at Kendal Leisure Centre and stopping at Kendal College, Kirkland, Highgate, Stricklandgate and at Webbs Garden Centre on Burneside Road before returning via Sandes Avenue, Blackhall Yard, New Road and Aynam Road.
