Review of Kendal: A historic town found on the borders of Lakeland in the county of Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and it's an important area for tourists, bringing in huge numbers of visitors during the year. Even then important enough to be noted in the 1086 Domesday Book, The town of Kendal has a history which extends back to largely unrecorded eras, an early Roman fortress (AD90), and later Norman fort pay testimony to this.

The 3rd biggest settlement in Cumbria, although in the past a part of Westmorland, the houses of Kendal are primarily built in grey limestone, earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Not at all a large town having approximately 28,586 inhabitants, Kendal does of course pull in many extra people in the form of travellers who go to this desirable region. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names throughout the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, various other names include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has been famed for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, often used by explorers and mountaineers as an energy food, & said to have been made unintentionally, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake today. Kendal has additionally been an important market town, and different trades by which its locals have eked out a living include the manufacture of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoe making & the wool industry.

The Story of Kendal: The first structure of any importance in the Kendal region was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in around AD90, by way of a fort. Arguments involving the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, ended when they began to trade with each other, until around the fourth century, once the Romans departed.

After the Roman invaders left, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued up until the Norman invasion after which a stone castle was built on Castle Hill in the 12th C, there are still the ruins of what we now call Kendal Castle. Perhaps most famous as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been believed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr, but because the castle was in a poor state of repair around the time she was given birth to, that looks unlikely.

Kendal was given its Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been vital for the town ever since those long gone times, that charter indeed still holds to this day and it affords Kendal the right to host a Saturday market.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is gotten to by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving using the A6, A65 or A684 highways.
