Review of Kendal: Bringing numerous tourists both winter and summer, the old town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, on the fringes of the Lake District Park in The county of Cumbria. Already substantial enough to be declared in the Domesday Book, written in 1086, The settlement of Kendal has a history which travels back to unrecorded times, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later Norman fort pay testament to this.

The 3rd most significant built-up area in Cumbria, although traditionally part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are mainly constructed in grey limestone, earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Certainly not a big town with about 28,000 citizens, Kendal does of course attract countless extra folks in the form of travellers who head to this prominent location. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are some of the names given to Kendal through the centuries.

A product that Kendal has been well known for decades is Kendal Mint Cake, often used by mountain climbers and explorers as an energy food, & suspected to have been discovered accidentally, 3 firms still produce the Mint Cake at present. From the 14th century wool was important for Kendal and alternative major trades whereby its inhabitants have eked out a living were shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Heritage of Kendal: The first construction of any importance in the Kendal district was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, by way of a fortification. Scrapping between the Romans and a tribe named the Brigantes, finished once they began to trade, until approximately the fourth century, at which time the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The presence of the conquering Normans resulted in the erection, in the 12th century, of a castle of stone (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Assumed by many people as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-48), the 6th spouse of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was most definitely the home of the Parr family at around this period, but supposed to be beyond repair about the time Catherine was born.

The town's legal right to host a Saturday market harps back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the charge from which helped fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter remains to this day and the market has proved really important for the town over the years.



Accessible by car (A65, A6 and A684) or railway (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Penrith and Carlisle.
