To help prevent the flooding of homes in the area, we have stocks of sandbags at the following depots:
- Ulverston: North Lonsdale Road Depot, LA12 9DZ
- Kendal: Canal Head Depot, Kendal, LA9 7BY
- Windermere: Ecclerigg Depot, Ecclerigg, Windermere, LA23 1 LJ
You can collect sandbags during normal office hours and have up to 10 per property. In some cases the depots will stay open for longer so that sandbags can be collected outside of office hours.
In exceptional circumstances we will attempt to deliver sandbags to the elderly and infirm. To arrange this please call our contact centre on 01539 733 333.
There is no charge for the service however we cannot guarantee that there will be enough sandbags or that we can deliver them during emergencies.
We are not able to provide sandbags for commercial premises.
