Review of Kendal: A major spot for tourists discovered on either side of the River Kent close to the boundaries of the Lake District, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal draws huge numbers of tourists all through the year. The history of Kendal extends back to unrecorded times, a Roman fortress was constructed close by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built during the twelfth century & the settlement was described in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal for the reason that the majority of of the houses are built from locally sourced greyish limestone, the town was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is currently the third biggest settlement in Cumbria. Kendal presently has a local populace of about 28,000, though of course appreciable quantities of visitors head to the area in particular during the summer season. Known as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal across the generations.

Whilst Kendal is famous as a tourism hot spot, the town has also long been acclaimed for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on marketed as an energy food, that has been favoured by explorers & mountain climbers. From around the fourteenth century the wool industry was significant for Kendal and various noteworthy businesses by which its inhabitants have eked out a living are shoes, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the Romans held control of the Kendal region, displacing the Brigantes tribe, they built a fort in approximately AD90, later on setting up trade with the displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fortification supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control after the Roman invaders left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The presence of the invading Normans triggered the erection, in the twelfth century, of a substantial stone castle (that we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is perhaps best known as the family home of the Parr family, actually many think that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry VIII's sixth spouse was born there, though it's improbable considering the castle was actually in a poor state of repair during the time she arrived in this world.

The town's right to have a Saturday market dates back as long ago as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the fee from this raised funds for Richard I's Crusades), the charter still holds good these days and the market has proved very vital for the area across the centuries.



The town of Kendal is to the south of Carlisle & Penrith within the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, UK, the town is accessed by using the A6, A684 & A65, it can furthermore be arrived at by railway via the FirstTranspennine Express.
