Review of Kendal: An ancient town found on the edge of the Lake District National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal stands on the River Kent and is an important spot for tourists, luring a lot of travellers throughout the year. The story of the settlement of Kendal stretches back to a undocumented era, a Roman fortress was built near by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century and the settlement was outlined in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The third most significant town in Cumbria, though in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are largely built in grey limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal nowadays has a resident population of approximately 29,000, although remember considerable quantities of tourists head to the area most significantly through the summer season. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names throughout the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was known as Cherchbi, some other names were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has been famed for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountain climbers and explorers as a high energy foodstuff, and supposed to have been stumbled upon unintentionally, three firms still produce the Mint Cake currently. From around the 14th C the wool trade was very important for Kendal and various other important industries by which its inhabitants have made a living include shoe making, the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Historical Past of Kendal: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held power of the Kendal area, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they raised a fortification in about 90 AD, consequently doing trade with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Roman invaders left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The coming of the invading Normans resulted in the raising, during the 12th c, of a strong stone castle (which we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most well known as the family home of the Parr family, certainly many people suspect that Catherine Parr, Henry the 8th's 6th wife was given birth to in the castle, however this is unlikely considering the castle was supposed to have been in a poor state of repair about the time she was given birth to.

Kendal was accorded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been vital for the town since those distant years, the charter indeed still remains to this day and it affords Kendal the right to host a market on Saturdays.



Reachable by driving (A684, A65 or A6) or train (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith.
