Review of Kendal: Bringing huge numbers of tourists throughout every season, the popular town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, on the edge of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. The story of the town of Kendal goes back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was built near by in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century and the settlement was described in the Domesday Book, written in 1086.

The third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria, though traditionally a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are typically made of grey limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". With a resident population of about 28,000, Kendal is a modest sized town, whilst the population is swelled considerably by visiting sightseers who appreciate this region. Many different titles have been bestowed on Kendal over the years such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has been famous for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountain climbers & explorers as an energy foodstuff, & suspected to have been made unintentionally, 3 companies still produce the Mint Cake today. Alternative businesses by which the locals of the town have eked out a living through the generations were the wool business, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has furthermore been an essential market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: The early occupants of the Kendal region were a people known as the Brigantes, however the 1st building of any significance was erected by the invading Romans at nearby Watercrook by way of a fortification in 90 AD, the Romans departed in around the 4th C.

After the Roman invaders departed, the region was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted up until the Norman invasion when a stone castle was constructed on Castle Hill in the 12th C, you can still see remains of which we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is possibly best known as the family home of the Parr family, in addition some believe that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry VIII's 6th wife was born there, however it's extremely unlikely considering the castle was already in serious need of repair around the time she arrived in this world.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to the town in 1189 in order to raise capital for the Crusades, the charter for the important Saturday market holds good these days.



The town of Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it can be arrived at by railway via the FirstTranspennine Express and by driving using the A65, A6 and A684 highways.
