Artist's Description

An English Heritage Grade II Listed Building

The Last Orders Inn and The Miles Thompson public house (originally called Shearman House) on Allhallows Lane, Kendal, Cumbria, England.

Shearman House, the stone building with the 70 feet (21.3m) chimney was opened in 1864 as a public wash-house and baths. Designed by Miles Thompson, the wash-house had facilities for 22 washerwomen and included clothes-horses on rail tracks and two pioneer spin-dryers. It was intended to alleviate the discomforts of washday for working families living in damp and ill-ventilated cottages, There were eight large porcelain baths, the lowest charge for a warm bath being two young women together at threepence each.

Later, it became council offices, and is now The Miles Thompson public house – allegedly the first non smoking pub in England.

Shearman House is an English Heritage Grade II Listed building (LBS Number: 1312303).

Situated on the River Kent, the Market Town of Kendal is regarded as the southern gateway to the Lake District National Park.
