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.
