The Castle Dairy re-opens as a Heritage & Education Centre

Castle Dairy

The Castle Dairy will be re-opened this month as a historic resource, open for the community to access and appreciate.

The Castle Dairy is the oldest, continuously occupied, medieval building in Kendal, built in the early part of the 14th century, and is bursting with heritage.

Kendal College are launching a programme of quarterly activities for adults in this inspiring environment, giving local people the opportunity to develop and learn new skills, and take part in a variety of enjoyable social activities.

Kelvin Nash Principal of Kendal College said: “The Castle Dairy is a truly unique building and the transition to an Education and Heritage Centre has been months in the planning. By using the Castle Dairy for adult education and recreational programmes, it will be the next chapter in the buildings long history. With a new range of courses, community events and a focus on the buildings heritage, we really are ensuring that we are keeping the building alive, and this is just the beginning of a really exciting future.”
