Review of Kendal: An important area for tourists standing next to the River Kent on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, the ancient Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to huge numbers of tourists every year. Even then vital enough to be specified in the 1086 Domesday Book, The town of Kendal has a story which travels back to undocumented times, an early Roman fortification (AD90), & later Norman fortress provide proof of this.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is primarily made of the local grey limestone giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is the third biggest town in the county of Cumbria. Under no circumstances a big town having roughly 28,000 occupants, Kendal does in addition pull in countless extra people in the form of travellers who flock to this well known region. Kendal as a settlement has had various names throughout the years, in the Domesday Book it was labelled as Cherchbi, other titles include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is well known as a tourist hotspot, the area has additionally long been renowned for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later on promoted as a high energy foodstuff, that has been favoured by climbers & explorers. Other businesses whereby the inhabitants of the town have earned a crust across the ages are the wool industry, shoe making, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has in addition been a major market town.

Kendal Historical Past: The earliest settlers of the Kendal district were a local tribe called the Brigantes, yet the 1st building of any significance was raised by the Romans at nearby Watercrook by way of a fort in the first century AD, the Romans in due course departed in about the 4th century.

After the Roman invaders left, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case up until the Norman conquest when a strong stone castle was constructed upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, there still exist the remnants of what we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most widely known as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often claimed to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr, yet because it was beyond repair by the time she was given birth to, this would seem to be extremely unlikely.

Kendal was given its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been vital for the town since those long gone days, the charter actually still holds even now and it allows the town the authority to host a Saturday market.



Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is reached by train via the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving via the A6, A65 or A684 highways.
