Review of Kendal: Located on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a vital area for the tourism industry because of its near proximity to the Lake District in addition to its own remarkable historical past. An early Roman fortification & twelfth century Norman castle pay testimony to Kendal's long past heritage as it extends back to largely unrecorded days, its reference in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its significance during those long departed times.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal for the reason that the majority of its properties are constructed of the local grey limestone, the town was in the past a part of Westmorland but is today the 3rd largest built-up area in Cumbria. Kendal nowadays has got a resident populace of roughly 29,000, though in fact substantial amounts of tourists flock to the town most significantly in the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names over the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was known as Cherchbi, other names include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

As well as the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe most known for the manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon inadvertently and later supplied for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition. From the 14th century the wool trade was important for the town & other significant businesses by which its people have earned a crust include shoe making, the manufacturing of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco.

The Heritage of Kendal: The first settlers of the Kendal district were a local tribe the Brigantes, though the first building of any significance was erected by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fort in AD90, the Romans departed in about the 4th century.

A whole lot later on a new castle or fort was raised in the Motte and Bailey design, though that was succeeded by a substantial stone castle after the Norman invasion, in around the 12th c which we now know as Kendal Castle, ruins still to be found on Castle Hill. Perhaps most commonly acknowledged for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often believed to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), yet seeing that the castle was past repairing at the moment she was given birth to, that would seem not likely.

The town's authority to run a Saturday market extends back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the associated fee for this raised funds for the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter holds good to this day and the market has proved extremely important for the town over the years.



The town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith, it can be gotten to by train by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by car by means of the A6, A684 or A65 highways.
