Review of Kendal: A historic town found on the borders of the Lakes National Park in Cumbria, Kendal rests on the River Kent and is a significant spot for tourists, appealing to numerous tourists throughout the year. The story of Kendal travels back to largely undocumented times, a Roman fortification was put up nearby in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century & the town was noted in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The 3rd most significant settlement in Cumbria, though in times past a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are generally built in grey limestone, earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal at present has a resident population of roughly 28,586, though of course considerable numbers of travellers go to the town particularly during the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has had several names throughout the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, additional titles include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be known for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountain climbers & explorers as an energy food, and said to have been stumbled upon by mistake, 3 firms still manufacture the Mint Cake at present. From the 14th C the wool industry was important for Kendal and additional major businesses whereby its inhabitants have survived are shoes, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Historical Past: From the first until the 4th centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal area, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they constructed a fortress in roughly AD90, at some point organising trade with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fortress in supplies.

After the Roman invaders departed, the locality was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued up to the Norman invasion when a substantial stone castle was constructed upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there are still what remains of which we now know as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is possibly most widely known as the home of the Parr family, indeed many people reckon that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse was given birth to there, though that is not likely as the castle was actually in a poor state of repair during the time she was given birth to.

Kendal's legal right to have a Market on Saturdays dates back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the associated fee from which helped fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter holds good even today and the market has been really vital for the town over the centuries.



Reachable by road (A6, A65 & A684) or railway (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, UK, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith.
