Long Description:
Mr Harry Arnold of Kendal and Mr Christopher Fell, timber merchant, of Troutbeck sold Abbot Hall in 1897 to Kendal Corporation for £3,750, of which the directors of Kendal Savings Bank contributed £2,500 ‘in consideration of the surroundings being made available for the public’.

The grounds became a public park which has provided enjoyment ever since.
