Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a significant area for tourism purely because of its proximity to Lakeland added to its own long ancient past. The story of the Kendal area stretches back to largely undocumented times, a Roman fort was erected near by in AD90, an early Norman castle was re-built during the 12th century and the settlement was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The 3rd most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though in times past part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are pretty much constructed in grey limestone, earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal these days has a local population of about 28,500, although remember huge amounts of travellers flock to the town in particular through the summer months. Kendal as a settlement has been called quite a few names throughout the years, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, various other titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Other than tourism, Kendal is perhaps most commonly known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been discovered by mistake & subsequently provided for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition. From around the fourteenth century the production of wool was very important for Kendal and alternative significant industries by which its people have survived are shoe making, the manufacture of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco.

Kendal History: The initial inhabitants of the Kendal area were a people named the Brigantes, but the first building of any significance was put up by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook by way of a fortification in the first century AD, the Romans ultimately departed in about the fourth century.

Once the Romans left, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation till the Norman invasion when a castle of stone was built on Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still the ruins of what we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Assumed by some historians as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-48), the sixth spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was clearly the residence of the Parr family at approximately this time, but supposed to be past repairing around the time she arrived in this world.

Richard the First given a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 as a way to collect capital for the Crusades, the charter for that vital Market on Saturdays still holds good even now.



Easy to get to by car (A6, A65 and A684) or rail (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle.
