Review of Kendal: A major region for the tourism industry lying on the banks of the River Kent on the boundaries of Lakeland, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in large numbers of visitors all year long. The history of the town of Kendal extends back to largely undocumented days, a Roman fortification was erected close by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century and the town was listed in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal given that many of its properties are made from locally sourced grey limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is currently the third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. Kendal today has got a resident population of around 28,000, although of course huge quantities of travellers flock to the town particularly through the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names throughout the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was known as Cherchbi, different names were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famous over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of mountaineers and explorers as a high energy food, & thought to have been made by accident, three firms still produce the Mint Cake currently. Various businesses by which the people of Kendal have earned a crust through the centuries include the wool trade, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has additionally been an important market town.

Kendal Historical Past: From the 1st to the fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held power of the Kendal region, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they constructed a fortification in about 90 AD, in due course organising trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The arrival of the invading Normans brought about the building, in the 12th century, of a castle of stone (which we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most widely known as the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been professed to be the birthplace of Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), however as the castle was beyond repair during the time she was born, that looks unlikely.

Kendal's legal right to run a Saturday market goes back as long ago as 1189 when it was accorded its Market Charter (the fee for this helped to pay for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter holds good today and the market has been very significant for the town through the years.



Easy to get to by driving (A6, A684 and A65) or railway (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle and Penrith.
