Review of Kendal: Enticing numerous tourists both winter and summer, the famous town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, at the fringe of Lakeland in The county of Cumbria. An early Roman fort & 12th century Norman fort give us evidence of the Kendal area's far off story as it travels back into the mists of time, the reference of it in the 1086 Domesday Book shows its prominence during those long departed eras.

In the past a part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is predominantly constructed in the local gray limestone earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is the third biggest built-up area in Cumbria. On no account a large town with roughly 28,586 citizens, Kendal does of course pull in lots of additional people in the form of sightseers who flock to this well loved region. Labelled Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are among the names bestowed on Kendal throughout the generations.

Although Kendal is widely known as a traveller destination, the area has additionally long been acclaimed for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, subsequently sold as an energy food, which has long been used often by explorers and climbers. From the 14th C the wool business was valuable for the town & various noteworthy businesses whereby its inhabitants have earned a living included shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

Kendal History: From the first to the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held power of the Kendal region, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fortress in approximately 90 AD, in due course organising trade with the dispossessed Brigantes in order to keep the fortress supplied.

Considerably later a new fort or castle was built in Motte and Bailey layout, however it was replaced by a strong stone castle after the Norman invasion, in around the 12th century and now known as Kendal Castle, remnants still to be viewed on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most widely known as the home of the Parr family, in addition many people believe that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the 8th's sixth wife was born there, though that is not likely since the castle was past repairing around the time she was born.

The town was awarded a Market Charter in 1189, and the market has always been essential for the town ever since those distant years, the charter in actual fact still holds to this day and it affords Kendal the ability to maintain a market on Saturdays.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, UK, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it can be accessed by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by road via the A6, A684 or A65 highways.
