Snuff Works, Lowther Street, Kendal, Cumbria
This factory has been producing snuff since 1782. Taking snuff was very fashionable in Georgian England. The building contains the oldest snuff machinery in Britain. The ancient trade sign on the street wall, of the Turk smoking a pipe, is probably the original. The company still exists in 2009 under the name Gawith Hoggarth and company. The company produces around 15 types of pipe tobacco and around 54 varieties of snuff.
