Flit for purpose - Kendal removal firm uses boat to ensure smooth move from Lakes island
3:14pm Monday 17th February 2014 in News
REMOVAL company Richards of Kendal has carried out one of its most unusual house moving jobs - with the help of a boat.
The company was called on to relocate a couple’s possessions from an 18th Century mansion on Derwent Isle, Derwentwater.
The complex move, which took a whole day, involved more than ten 15-minute round trips on the National Trust property’s motorised dinghy to ferry items to the main shore. They were then taken by road to Dorset.
