Review of Kendal: Sitting on the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a vital region for the tourism industry especially due to its nearness to the Lakes National Park as well as its own extended historic past. An early Roman fortress and 12th C Norman fortress present proof of Kendal's long past story as it extends back to largely undocumented times, its reference in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its prominence throughout those long departed times.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal for the reason that the majority of its properties are built from locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is these days the 3rd most significant settlement in Cumbria. With a resident populace of around 28,586, Kendal is just a modest town, while this populace is swelled somewhat by visiting tourists who simply adore this region. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names over the eras, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, some other titles include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Besides the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most recognized for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon by mistake and later on supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Adventure. From around the 14th C wool was really important for the town & different significant businesses whereby its inhabitants have survived include shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Historical Past of Kendal: From the first up to 4th centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal district, displacing the Brigantes people, they put up a fortress in around AD90, in the end doing trade with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortification supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway right after the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The appearance of the invading Normans led to the construction, in the twelfth century, of a substantial stone castle (which we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most widely known as the home of the Parr family, actually some feel that Catherine Parr, Henry the Eighth's 6th wife was born there, whilst this is unlikely as the castle was beyond repair at the time she arrived in this world.

Kendal's right to run a Saturday market goes back as far as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the associated fee from which raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter still holds good these days and the market has been extremely important for the area over the ages.



Accessible by car (A65, A6 and A684) or rail (the FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, UK, to the south of Carlisle and Penrith.
