Review of Kendal: A vital spot for the tourism industry standing beside the River Kent close to the fringes of the Lakes National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in huge numbers of tourists each and every year. An early Roman fortress and 12th century Norman fort offer proof of the town of Kendal's far off story as it stretches back into the mists of time, its mention in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086 illustrates its value even during those long gone days.

In the past part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly built of the local gray limestone earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is the third biggest built-up area in Cumbria. Kendal at present has got a resident populace of roughly 28,000, though remember huge amounts of sightseers travel to the town in particular in the summer time. Many different names were bestowed on Kendal through the ages such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Even though Kendal is famous as a tourism destination, the town has also long been widely recognized for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on advertised as a high energy foodstuff, & that has been popular with mountain climbers and explorers. Various businesses whereby the citizens of the town have survived over the ages feature the wool industry, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been an essential market town.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The early settlers of the Kendal district were a tribe named the Brigantes, however the 1st building of any magnitude was put in place by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fort in AD90, the Romans departed in around the 4th C.

After the Roman invaders departed, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman invasion when a strong stone castle was built upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, you can still explore remains of which we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most widely known for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has repeatedly been claimed to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), although since it was beyond repair about the time she arrived in this world, this appears to be extremely unlikely.

The town was given its Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been vital for the region ever since those long gone years, this charter in fact still remains even today and it affords the town the right to host a Saturday market.



The town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, UK, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith, it can be accessed by railway by using the FirstTranspennine Express & by car by means of the A6, A684 or A65 routes.
