Review of Kendal: Enticing a lot of tourists every year, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the edge of Lakeland in Cumbria. An early Roman fortification and 12th C Norman fortress show evidence of Kendal's early story as it extends back to unrecorded times, the annotation of it in the 1086 Domesday Book illustrates its prominence throughout those long past eras.

In times past part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mainly constructed in the local gray limestone giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the third largest town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal today has got a resident population of about 28,000, though remember substantial quantities of travellers go to the town particularly during the summer season. Labelled as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal across the centuries.

A product that Kendal has been well known for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by explorers and mountaineers as a high energy food supplement, and said to have been discovered accidentally, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake these days. Kendal has additionally been an essential market town, & a few other trades whereby its folk have survived feature the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool business.

Kendal History: The 1st construction that had size in the Kendal area was built by the invading Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, in the form of a fort. Conflicts between the Romans and a tribe referred to as the Brigantes, stopped once they started to trade, until around the fourth century, at which time the Romans left.

After the Roman invaders departed, the region was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman invasion at which time a castle of stone was raised on Castle Hill in the 12th C, you can still pay a visit to the remainder of which we now call Kendal Castle. Possibly most widely known as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been believed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, but as it was in a poor state of repair by the time she arrived in this world, that appears to be improbable.

Richard I granted a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 as a way to generate funds for the Crusades, the charter for that vital Saturday market still remains today.



The town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, UK, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is accessed by rail via the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving by means of the A6, A65 or A684 routes.
