Review of Kendal: A historical town upon the fringe of the Lakes in the county of Cumbria, Kendal lies on the River Kent and it is a major area for tourism, drawing many travellers each year. An early Roman fortification and twelfth century Norman fortress pay testament to the town of Kendal's early background as it stretches back to largely undocumented times, the reference of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 indicates its prominence even in those long departed days.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal simply because the majority of of its houses are constructed of the local greyish limestone, the settlement was historically part of Westmorland but is currently the third largest settlement in Cumbria. Kendal currently has got a local population of roughly 28,500, although remember substantial amounts of travellers flock to the town especially through the summertime. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are among the names bestowed on Kendal throughout the eras.

Besides the tourism industry, Kendal is probably best known for the manufacturing of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, suspected to have been discovered by accident and eventually provided as an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure. Various industries by which the people of the town have survived across the eras feature the wool trade, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has in addition been a significant market town.

Kendal Heritage: The earliest building that had importance in the Kendal region was built by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in approximately the first century AD, by way of a fortification. Conflicts between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, halted when they began to trade with each other, until roughly the 4th century, when the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway right after the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were the chief settlers. The presence of the conquering Normans resulted in the building, during the twelfth century, of a strong stone castle (which we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Maybe most commonly recognized as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been believed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however as the castle was in a poor state of repair about the time she was given birth to, this seems unlikely.

The town was awarded a Market Charter in 1189, and the market has been significant for the area since those far off times, this charter indeed still holds to this day and it allows Kendal the right to host a market on Saturdays.



Accessible by road (A6, A684 or A65) or railway (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Carlisle & Penrith.
