Audio slideshow: The silver sword & mace of Kendal

Kept under lock and key in Kendal Town Hall are a number of items that chart the history
of the 'Old Grey Town'.
Charter documents and many pieces of silver reflect the prosperity of the south Cumbrian town
dating back over hundreds of years. Peter Cannon is the Mayor's Attendant and has the responsibility
of looking after the unique collection of silverware.
