Review of Kendal: Luring considerable numbers of travellers during the year, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, near the boundaries of the Lake District Park in Cumbria. An early Roman fortification and 12th C Norman fort give us evidence of the Kendal area's early history as it extends back into the mists of time, the reference of it in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086 illustrates its significance even in those long departed eras.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal because a lot of of the houses are made from the local grey limestone, the town was historically a part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd biggest town in the county of Cumbria. Definitely not a large town having about 28,586 inhabitants, Kendal does of course attract a lot of additional folks in the shape of sightseers who travel to this prominent location. Kendal as a settlement has been called various names throughout the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, some other names include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is known as a traveller destination, the town has in addition long been widley known for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on advertised as an energy foodstuff, that's long been popular with explorers and climbers. Since the fourteenth century the wool trade was really important for the town & different major industries by which its locals have earned a living included shoe making, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

Kendal History: The first construction of any importance in the Kendal area was built by the invading Romans at Watercrook in around the first century AD, by way of a fortification. Fighting between the Romans and a local tribe named the Brigantes, concluded when they started to trade, until approximately the fourth century, when the Romans left.

A whole lot later a new fort or castle was erected in Motte and Bailey style, nonetheless this was supplanted by a strong stone castle following the Norman invasion, in roughly the 12th century now known as Kendal Castle, ruins still surviving on Castle Hill. Considered by many as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was without doubt the home of the Parr family at around this time, but thought to be in a poor state of repair by the time Catherine arrived in this world.

Kendal was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been crucial for the town ever since those long gone times, the charter in fact still holds today and it affords Kendal the right to have a Saturday market.



Relatively easy to get to by driving (A684, A6 & A65) or train (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is positioned in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, south of Carlisle and Penrith.
