Review of Kendal: An ancient town positioned on the boundaries of the Lake District in Cumbria, Kendal lies on the River Kent and it's a significant region for tourists, drawing many tourists year round. An early Roman fortification and 12th century Norman castle give us evidence of the town of Kendal's early heritage as it extends back to unrecorded times, the mention of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 reveals its significance even during those long departed years.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal for the reason that almost all of the buildings are constructed of locally sourced grey limestone, the town was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is now the third most significant town in Cumbria. Not at all a big town with around 28,500 residents, Kendal does of course attract lots of additional folks in the form of travellers who go to this desirable location. A variety of names have been given to Kendal over the ages for instance Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Whilst Kendal is known as a traveller destination, the area has also long been famous for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on sold as an energy food, that has long been favoured by explorers and mountain climbers. Kendal has in addition been an important market town, & other types of industries whereby its citizens have earned a living include the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool industry.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first structure that had magnitude in the Kendal region was put up by the Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, in the shape of a fortification. Arguments between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, finished after they begun to trade, until approximately the 4th century, when the Romans abandoned the fort.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled once the Roman invaders left, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The coming of the conquering Normans saw the erection, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (that we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Possibly most recognized as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been reported to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), though seeing that the castle was past repairing around the time she arrived in this world, this seems not likely.

The town's authority to have a Saturday market goes back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the fee from this helped to fund Richard I's Crusades), the charter remains these days and the market has proved extremely significant for the town throughout the ages.



Reachable by car (A684, A65 or A6) or rail (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is located in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle.
