Information for Kendal Cumbria: Popular with a lot of visitors throughout every season, the historic town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, at the borders of the Lake District Park in The county of Cumbria. The story of the town of Kendal extends back to largely unrecorded days, a Roman fortress was built near by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century & the town was mentioned in the Domesday Book, concluded in 1086.

In times past part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mostly made of locally sourced grey limestone gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it's the 3rd most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria. Not at all a huge town having about 29,000 inhabitants, Kendal does additionally bring in many additional people in the shape of travellers who go to this popular location. Termed Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are among the names given to Kendal over the years.

A product for which Kendal has been renowned for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountain climbers & explorers as a high energy foodstuff, and suspected to have been discovered inadvertently, three firms still produce the Mint Cake presently.

Kendal Historical Past: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal area, displacing the local Brigantes tribe, they constructed a fortress in roughly the first century AD, eventually establishing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortification supplied.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation up until the Norman invasion after which a stone castle was raised upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still remains of what we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is perhaps best known as the home of the Parr family, certainly many people suspect that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry VIII's sixth spouse arrived in this world in the castle, whilst this is unlikely considering the castle was reckoned to have been beyond repair around the time she arrived in this world.

The town's legal right to maintain a Saturday market starts back as long ago as 1189 when it was granted its Market Charter (the associated fee from this helped to fund the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter still remains even now and the market was extremely vital for the area throughout the years.
