Information for Kendal Cumbria: A significant region for tourists standing beside the River Kent at the edge of the Lake District, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal attracts huge numbers visitors throughout every season. The story of Kendal extends back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was erected in close proximity in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built during the 12th century & the town was named in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal simply because nearly all of the houses are made from the local grey limestone, the town was in times past part of Westmorland but is currently the third biggest built-up area in Cumbria. Kendal these days has a resident populace of around 29,000, though remember considerable amounts of travellers travel to the town especially through the summertime. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are some of the names bestowed on Kendal through the ages.

A product that Kendal has been widley known over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountaineers and explorers as a high energy food, & said to have been discovered by chance, 3 firms still make the Mint Cake currently. Kendal has also been an essential market town, & various other trades by which its people have earned a living are the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoes and the wool industry.

Kendal Story: From the 1st up to fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal district, displacing the local Brigantes people, they raised a fort in about the first century AD, ultimately doing trade with the previously displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fort in supplies.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the region was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up until the Norman invasion after which a stone castle was built on Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there are still the remnants of which we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Possibly most famous as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been alleged to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however seeing that the castle was in serious need of repair at the time she was born, that seems extremely unlikely.

Kendal was issued its Market Charter in 1189, and the market always has been crucial for the area since those early days, the charter in fact is still in place these days and it allows Kendal the right to have a market on Saturdays.
