Review of Kendal: A historic town situated on the edge of the Lakes National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and it's a vital spot for the tourism industry, drawing numerous visitors each and every year. The story of the Kendal area travels back to largely unrecorded times, a Roman fort was erected in close proximity in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the twelfth century & the town was referred to in the Domesday Book, written in 1086.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal due to the fact that most of the houses are made from locally sourced grey limestone, the settlement was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is currently the third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. Kendal today has a resident populace of around 28,586, though remember substantial amounts of tourists go to the area especially in the summertime. Listed as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal through the eras.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is possibly best known for the manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, suspected to have been discovered accidentally & later on supplied as an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition. Kendal has additionally been a significant market town, and different businesses whereby its inhabitants have eked out a living included the manufacturing of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoes & the wool business.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first building of any importance in the Kendal area was put up by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in roughly AD90, in the shape of a fortress. Fighting involving the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, finished when they begun to trade with each other, until around the 4th century, at which time the Romans left.

After the Romans left, the region was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted up to the Norman conquest at which time a castle of stone was raised upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, you can still see the ruins of what we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most recognized for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been professed to be the birthplace of Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however because the castle was beyond repair at the moment she arrived in this world, this would seem to be improbable.

Kendal was given a Market Charter in 1189, and the market was always essential for the town ever since those ancient years, this charter in fact still holds today and it grants Kendal the right to maintain a Saturday market.



Simple to get to by car (A684, A65 or A6) or train (the FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle.
