Review of Kendal: Bringing huge numbers of tourists throughout every season, the historic town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, at the fringe of the Lakes in The county of Cumbria. Even then significant enough to be described in the 1086 Domesday Book, The Kendal area has a history which extends back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman castle pay testament to this.

The 3rd most significant built-up area in Cumbria, though in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mainly made of grey limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". With its local populace of about 28,000, Kendal is only a moderate sized town, while the population grows to some degree by visiting sightseers who take pleasure in this place. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are among the names given to Kendal over the eras.

Even though Kendal is well regarded as a tourism destination, the town has also long been widley known for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later marketed as a high energy food, that has long been popular with climbers & explorers. Since the 14th century the wool trade was significant for Kendal and a few other notable industries by which its inhabitants have eked out a living included shoes, the manufacture of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

Kendal History: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal area, taking over from the Brigantes people, they erected a fortification in roughly 90 AD, subsequently establishing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes in order to keep the fortress supplied.

Considerably later a new fort or castle was constructed in Motte and Bailey style, although it was replaced by a strong stone castle after the Norman conquest, this was in roughly the twelfth century which we now know as Kendal Castle, ruins still surviving on Castle Hill. Presumed by some experts to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the 6th spouse of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was without a doubt the family home of the Parr family at around this period, even though supposed to be in serious need of repair around the time Catherine was given birth to.

Kendal was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and the market always has been vital for the region since those early times, this charter in actual fact is still in place even today and it affords the town the authority to hold a Saturday market.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, UK, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith, it can be accessed by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by road via the A684, A6 or A65 highways.
