Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a vital spot for the tourism industry because of its close proximity to the Lake District Park in addition to its own extended historical past. The story of the Kendal area stretches back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was constructed nearby in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century & the town was named in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086.

In times past part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly made of locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd biggest town in the county of Cumbria. By no means a big town having approximately 28,000 occupants, Kendal does of course bring in lots of extra folks in the form of travellers who flock to this sought after region. Many different names have been given to Kendal across the generations such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Even though Kendal is renowned as a tourism hotspot, the town has in addition long been acclaimed for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on promoted as a high energy food supplement, that has long been favoured by mountaineers and explorers. Different trades by which the locals of Kendal have eked out a living throughout the centuries were the production of wool, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been a vital market town.

Kendal Historical Past: The earliest construction of any importance in the Kendal district was erected by the invading Romans at Watercrook in about AD90, by way of a fort. Brawls involving the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, ended once they began to do trade, until about the 4th century, once the Romans left.

Significantly later on a new fort or castle was constructed in the Motte and Bailey type, nevertheless it was succeeded by a castle of stone following the Norman invasion, this was in roughly the 12th century and now called Kendal Castle, remnants still surviving on Castle Hill. Maybe most commonly known as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been professed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr, however since the castle was in a poor state of repair about the time she was given birth to, this would seem unlikely.

Kendal's legal right to have a Market on Saturdays dates back as far as 1189 when it was awarded its Market Charter (the charge from this helped to pay for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter still holds good today and the market has proved very vital for the area through the ages.



Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be got to by train by using the FirstTranspennine Express & by car by way of the A684, A65 & A6 highways.
