Review of Kendal: Sitting on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a major area for tourism due to its near proximity to Lakeland along with its own long ancient past. An early Roman fortress & 12th C Norman castle pay testimony to Kendal's long past background as it goes back to unrecorded times, its annotation in the Domesday Book of 1086 demonstrates its prominence even in those long past days.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mostly constructed in locally sourced grey limestone gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is the 3rd biggest built-up area in Cumbria. With a local population of roughly 28,586, Kendal is a moderate town, while the population is swelled considerably by visiting travellers who appreciate this location. Called Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal through the eras.

Apart from tourism, Kendal is most commonly known for the manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been discovered accidentally and eventually provided for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Kendal has also been a major market town, and a few other trades by which its folk have earned a crust are the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoe making and the wool business.

Kendal History: The initial inhabitants of the Kendal region were a tribe known as the Brigantes, even though the 1st construction of any significance was put up by the invading Romans at nearby Watercrook by way of a fortification in AD90, the Romans departed in around the 4th C.

A whole lot later a new fort or castle was raised of the Motte and Bailey type, though it was superceded by a substantial stone castle after the Norman invasion, in approximately the twelfth century which we now know as Kendal Castle, parts still can be visited on Castle Hill. Perhaps best known as the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been reported to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), although because the castle was beyond repair about the time she was given birth to, that seems to be not likely.

The town was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been crucial for the area since those distant years, that charter in fact still holds even today and it affords Kendal the authority to hold a Saturday market.



Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Penrith and Carlisle, it can be reached by railway by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by car via the A6, A684 or A65 highways.
