Cafe corner of Market Place, Kendal - geograph.org.uk - 1760160Review of Kendal: Encouraging a great number of tourists throughout every season, the historic town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, near the fringe of Lakeland in The county of Cumbria. An early Roman fortification & 12th century Norman fortress pay testimony to Kendal's early background as it stretches back into the mists of time, the reference of it in the 1086 Domesday Book shows its importance during those long past eras.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal because virtually all of its buildings are constructed of the local grey limestone, the town was in times past a part of Westmorland but is now the third biggest town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal currently has a resident population of approximately 28,500, though remember considerable amounts of tourists flock to the area most significantly in the summertime. Kendal as a settlement has been called several names through the years, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, various other titles were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

As well as tourism, Kendal is maybe most well known for the manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, suspected to have been discovered by mistake and later on supplied for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Since the 14th C the wool trade was significant for the town & alternative notable trades by which its folk have eked out a living feature shoe making, the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The 1st structure of any significance in the Kendal district was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in approximately 90 AD, in the shape of a fortification. Disputes between the Romans and a local tribe named the Brigantes, concluded after they began to trade, until around the 4th c, when the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held sway right after the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were the chief settlers. The appearance of the invading Normans triggered the erection, in the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Perhaps best known as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often stated to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), yet since it was in a poor state of repair around the time she arrived in this world, this would seem not likely.

Richard the First awarded a Market Charter to the town in 1189 in order to raise funds for his Crusades, the charter for this vital Market on Saturdays holds good to this day.



The town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle and Penrith, it is reached by railway by way of the FirstTranspennine Express and by road using the A684, A6 & A65 routes.
