Review of Kendal: A significant area for tourism sitting next to the River Kent on the fringes of the Lakes National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in large numbers of visitors throughout every season. Already substantial enough to be declared in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, The town of Kendal has a story which stretches back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortification (AD90), & later Norman fortress pay testament to this.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal for the reason that the majority of of the buildings are constructed of the local grey limestone, the town was traditionally part of Westmorland but is today the 3rd largest town in Cumbria. Kendal at present has a local population of about 28,000, although remember appreciable numbers of sightseers travel to the town particularly during the summer season. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names given to Kendal over the eras.

As well as the tourism industry, Kendal is most recognized for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon by chance & later provided for an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Trip. A few other businesses whereby the citizens of the town have survived through the generations included the production of wool, shoes, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has also been an essential market town.

Kendal Heritage: From the first to the fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal area, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they put up a fortress in roughly AD90, at some point trading with the previously displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fort supplied.

Once the Romans left, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case till the Norman conquest when a strong stone castle was erected on Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still the ruins of which we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most widely known as the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often claimed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), but seeing that the castle was in a poor state of repair during the time she arrived in this world, this appears improbable.

Kendal was given its Market Charter in 1189, and the market was always important for the area since those ancient days, that charter actually still holds even now and it allows Kendal the authority to maintain a Saturday market.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be gotten to by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving via the A6, A684 and A65 routes.
