Review of Kendal: On both sides of the River Kent in Cumbria, Kendal is a major spot for tourism due to its close proximity to Lakeland as well as its own long ancient past. Even then important enough to be described in the 1086 Domesday Book, The Kendal area has a story which extends back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortress (AD90), & subsequent Norman fortress give proof of this.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal for the reason that many of its houses are constructed of locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is today the third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. Kendal these days has a resident population of approximately 28,500, though of course appreciable amounts of visitors flock to the area in particular through the summertime. Kendal as a settlement has had various names throughout the generations, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, different names were Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Although Kendal is well regarded as a tourist hotspot, the area has also long been famed for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later advertised as an energy foodstuff, that has been favoured by mountain climbers & explorers. Kendal has moreover been a major market town, & various industries whereby its citizens have made a living are the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoe making & the wool industry.

The History of Kendal: The first occupants of the Kendal district were a tribe called the Brigantes, yet the first building of any size was built by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fortress in the first century AD, the Romans subsequently departed in roughly the 4th C.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control as soon as the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The coming of the invading Normans saw the raising, during the 12th c, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most commonly recognized for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has frequently been touted to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), although because the castle was past repairing at the moment she was given birth to, that appears to be improbable.

Richard I granted a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 to help collect revenue for his Crusades, the charter for this essential Market on Saturdays holds good even now.



The town of Kendal is located in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, south of Penrith and Carlisle, it is arrived at by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by road via the A65, A684 & A6 routes.
