Kentmere was a small black-and-white film manufacturer based in the Lake District for many years. It was acquired by Ilford's parent company in 2007, who consolidated production in their Mobberley plant. The brand exists as a more-affordable alternative to Ilford, with the same quality and consistency of production but with savings made in the emulsion chemicals.

I have been meaning to try Kentmere film for absolutely ages.
I have read blogs and reviews where people have sung it’s praises comparing it to my beloved ilford HP5 at a bargain price.
I shot it ar box speed in my Nikon F100 andI processed it in ilfotecHC 1+15 dilution for 4 minutes 30 seconds as per massive dev app times and scanned with my old Epson v500.
The results were great I was very happy with how the film performed.
There was plenty of detail with pretty nice grain and the tonal range was very pleasing.
It is a great all rounder especially at the price ... recommended
Good black and white film for beginners. Not super sharp but gave a good contrast.
Does what you expect. However I shot with a 50 year old Russian camera & I haven’t tried enlarging with it but copy the negs with a digital camera so it’s hard to actually assess the quality. Decelerations in Ilfosol for 7 minutes. Comparing it with HP5 put through the same process the HP5 looks slightly better.
Nice all rounder, good everyday alternative to something more expensive like HP5 or XP2. Developed in Rodinal for about 20 minutes. Probably a good choice for a first time home development. For the price you can't really go wrong.
Had really great results with this film. It’s excellent for experimentation. Very versatile: can be used for most environments. Developed my roll in caffenol for about 15 minutes and was really pleased with the result.
