Review of Kendal: A major spot for tourism sitting on either side of the River Kent near the boundaries of the Lakes, the historical Cumbrian town of Kendal draws in huge numbers of tourists during the year. The story of the Kendal area travels back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was erected nearby in AD90, an early Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century & the settlement was recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal due to the fact that many of the houses are constructed of the local greyish limestone, the settlement was in the past a part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd largest town in Cumbria. Under no circumstances a huge town having about 29,000 occupants, Kendal does on top of that attract many extra people in the form of tourists who flock to this sought after location. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names over the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Cherchbi, additional titles were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product that Kendal has come to be widley known for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by explorers & mountain climbers as a high energy foodstuff, and said to have been discovered by accident, 3 firms still produce the Mint Cake at present. Additional trades by which the inhabitants of the town have eked out a living over the years were the wool business, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has in addition been a significant market town.

The History of Kendal: The first structure of any importance in the Kendal district was erected by the Romans at Watercrook in about AD90, in the form of a fortress. Scrapping between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, finished after they started to trade with each other, until approximately the 4th century, at which time the Romans departed.

Considerably later on a new fort or castle was built in Motte and Bailey layout, however this was superceded by a stone castle following the Norman conquest, dating from around the 12th century and now known as Kendal Castle, ruins still surviving on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most widely known as the family home of the Parr family, actually many think that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the Eighth's sixth wife was born in the castle, though that's improbable since the castle was past repairing about the time she was born.

The town was given a Market Charter in 1189, and the market has long been significant for the town ever since those distant years, the charter actually still holds even now and it gives Kendal the authority to maintain a market on Saturdays.



The town of Kendal is found to the south of Penrith & Carlisle in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, UK, it is got to by means of the A65, A6 & A684, it may also be arrived at by train by way of the FirstTranspennine Express.
