Kendal - Prince Charlie's House

 

Prince Charlie’s House in Stricklandgate was built in 1790. The house was owned during the Stuart rebellion of 1745 by Justice Thomas Shepherd, It was slept in by ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’ during his advance on London and again during his retreat when his pursuer, the Duke of Cumberland, slept in the same bed on the following night.
 
In an exchange of fire with the retreating army a highlander and a local farmer were shot.
