Although it now consists of only one platform, Kendal station still appears quite grand, with its original station building still standing. The line is on an embankment, so the station building is at ground level but the ramp on the left leads up to platform level:

Kendal front, ground floor

On the road to the east of the station building a previous second stepped entrance is visible:

Starting up the ramp to the station itself, with a small cycle and foot path on the right and a road on the left:

The station used to have a building on the northern side of the line, but that was demolished when the line was singled. However, traces still remain. Walking through the subway that leads under the line from the ground floor frontage, we look back at the rear of the station:

Behind fences are old tiled entrances to what was probably once part of the station on this side of the line:

The area formerly occupied by buildings on this side of the line is now a car park, giving this view of the rear of the existing station buildings:
