Review of Kendal: Appealing to huge numbers of visitors all year round, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, at the borders of the Lakes National Park in The county of Cumbria. The history of Kendal stretches back to largely unrecorded eras, a Roman fortress was put up in close proximity in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built during the 12th century & the settlement was specified in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The 3rd largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although historically a part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mainly built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". By no means a large town with roughly 28,000 residents, Kendal does furthermore lure a lot of additional people in the shape of sightseers who travel to this desirable spot. Kendal as a settlement has had several names throughout the eras, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, additional titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most commonly known for the manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, believed to have been discovered unintentionally and later on provided for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Various other industries whereby the people of Kendal have made a living over the years were the wool trade, shoe making, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has furthermore been a major market town.

Kendal History: From the first to the 4th centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal area, taking over from the local Brigantes tribe, they erected a fortress in around the first century AD, in the end establishing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortress in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The coming of the conquering Normans resulted in the erection, during the 12th century, of a strong stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Suspected by many people as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-48), the sixth spouse of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was unquestionably the home of the Parr family at about this period, even though supposed to be beyond repair at the moment Catherine was born.

Kendal's right to maintain a Saturday market harps back as far as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the associated fee from this helped fund the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter is still in place even today and the market has proved very significant for the area across the ages.



Reachable by road (A684, A6 and A65) or rail (FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle.
