Review of Kendal: An important area for tourism sitting on both sides of the River Kent on the fringe of the Lake District Park, the ancient Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to significant numbers of travellers throughout the year. The history of the settlement of Kendal stretches back into the mists of time, a Roman fortress was put up near by in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century and the settlement was specified in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The third biggest built-up area in Cumbria, though traditionally part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are mainly constructed in grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal currently has a resident population of roughly 28,586, although remember significant amounts of visitors head to the town particularly in the summer time. Various names were given to Kendal over the centuries for instance Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has been famous for years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountaineers & explorers as an energy foodstuff, and understood to have been made accidentally, three companies still make the Mint Cake at present. From around the 14th century the production of wool was essential for the town and various notable industries whereby its people have survived included shoes, the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

Kendal History: The 1st structure of any significance in the Kendal area was built by the Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, in the form of a fortress. Tussles between the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, stopped when they began to trade with each other, until around the 4th century, when the Romans departed.

Once the Romans left, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case till the Norman conquest at which time a castle of stone was built upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, there are still what remains of which we now know as Kendal Castle. Suspected by many people to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the sixth wife of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was certainly the home of the Parr family at approximately this moment in time, though supposed to be in a poor state of repair by the time she was given birth to.

Richard I accorded a Market Charter to the town in 1189 to help raise revenue for his Crusades, the charter for this vital Market on Saturdays remains to this day.



Reachable by car (A65, A6 or A684) or rail (the FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Carlisle and Penrith.
