Review of Kendal: A vital area for tourism nicely situated beside the River Kent on the fringe of the Lakes National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in large numbers of tourists every year. Already important enough to be outlined in the Domesday Book of 1086, The settlement of Kendal has a history which stretches back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman fort give us proof of this.

Traditionally a part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is primarily built in locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is actually the 3rd largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria. With its resident population of around 28,000, Kendal is just a moderate town, however the population is swelled to some degree by visiting visitors who take pleasure in this region. Different titles were bestowed on Kendal through the eras like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

In addition to the tourism industry, Kendal is probably most widely known for the manufacturing of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been discovered accidentally & eventually provided for an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Various industries by which the inhabitants of the town have made a living across the ages are wool, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has also been a noteworthy market town.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The 1st occupants of the Kendal district were a tribe called the Brigantes, however the 1st construction of any importance was put up by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fortress in AD90, the Romans finally left in approximately the 4th C.

After the Romans left, the region was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted up until the Norman invasion when a stone castle was constructed upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, there are still remains of which we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Possibly most well known for being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often reported to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), but because the castle was in serious need of repair during the time she was born, that would seem to be extremely unlikely.

The town was granted a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has been essential for the region ever since those long past days, that charter in fact is still in place even now and it allows Kendal the ability to have a Saturday market.



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