Review of Kendal: A historical town on the fringe of Lakeland in the county of Cumbria, Kendal rests on the River Kent and it is a vital spot for tourism, bringing in many travellers throughout the year. Already important enough to be referred to in the 1086 Domesday Book, The town of Kendal has a story which stretches back to undocumented times, an early Roman fort (AD90), & later Norman fortress give evidence of this.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is primarily made of the local gray limestone earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd largest town in the county of Cumbria. With its local population of around 28,586, Kendal is just a modest sized town, although the populace is swelled to some degree by visiting visitors who really enjoy this spot. Different titles were given to Kendal across the years like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is perhaps most famous for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been discovered by accident and later on supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Alternative businesses by which the inhabitants of the town have survived throughout the eras were wool, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been a significant market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st up to fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal region, dispossessing the Brigantes people, they erected a fort in around AD90, subsequently organising trade with the dispossessed Brigantes so as to keep the fort supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The appearance of the invading Normans brought about the erection, in the 12th c, of a strong stone castle (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is perhaps most well known as the residence of the Parr family, also some think that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse was born in the castle, though that is extremely unlikely because the castle was reckoned to have been past repairing around the time she was born.

Kendal's right to maintain a Saturday market dates back as long ago as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the fee for this helped to fund the Crusades of Richard I), the charter is still in place to this day and the market has proved very significant for the town across the generations.



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