Review of Kendal: An important region for tourism sitting on either side of the River Kent at the fringe of the Lake District National Park, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to huge numbers of visitors all through the year. An early Roman fortress & twelfth century Norman fortress pay testament to Kendal's early heritage as it travels back to largely unrecorded days, its annotation in the 1086 Domesday Book displays its prominence throughout those long past years.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal simply because the majority of of its buildings are made from the local greyish limestone, the town was historically a part of Westmorland but is now the third most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria. Kendal these days has a local populace of around 28,500, though in fact significant quantities of sightseers travel to the town especially in the summer season. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names through the eras, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, additional names were Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has come to be known over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountain climbers & explorers as a high energy food, & understood to have been made by accident, 3 companies still make the Mint Cake today. Kendal has also been a noteworthy market town, and different industries whereby its locals have eked out a living included the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoe making & wool.

The Heritage of Kendal: The 1st occupants of the Kendal district were a local tribe known as the Brigantes, although the 1st building of any importance was put in place by the Romans at nearby Watercrook by way of a fortification in AD90, the Romans in due course left in approximately the 4th century.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control once the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The appearance of the conquering Normans brought about the building, in the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Suspected by many as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the sixth wife of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was most definitely the home of the Parr family at about this point, though supposed to be in a poor state of repair around the time she was born.

The town was given its Market Charter in 1189, and the market has always been significant for the region ever since those far off times, this charter indeed still holds even now and it gives the town the ability to hold a market on Saturdays.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is gotten to by train by means of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving via the A684, A65 or A6 roads.
