Review of Kendal: An age-old town on the edge of the Lake District Park in Cumbria, Kendal sits on the River Kent and it is a significant region for tourists, attracting many visitors during the year. The story of the Kendal area stretches back to largely unrecorded times, a Roman fortress was constructed in the area in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century and the settlement was listed in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal given that a large percentage of of its houses are built from the local grey limestone, the town was in times past a part of Westmorland but is now the 3rd most significant settlement in Cumbria. Kendal today has got a local populace of approximately 28,586, although of course appreciable amounts of travellers travel to the area especially through the summertime. Kendal as a settlement has been called various names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was referred to as Cherchbi, other titles were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be widely recognized for decades is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountaineers & explorers as a high energy food, & said to have been made by chance, three firms still make the Mint Cake currently. Since the 14th century the wool industry was vital for the town and other types of significant businesses whereby its inhabitants have survived include shoes, the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

Kendal Historical Past: The early occupants of the Kendal district were a people known as the Brigantes, although the first building of any importance was built by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fortress in 90 AD, the Romans departed in around the 4th century.

After the Romans left, the region was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted up to the Norman invasion at which time a stone castle was built upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, there still exist remains of which we now know as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is perhaps most recognized as the family home of the Parr family, indeed many suspect that Catherine Parr, Henry the 8th's 6th spouse arrived in this world there, though that is not likely since the castle was believed to have been past repairing about the time she was born.

The town was awarded its Market Charter in 1189, and the market was always important for the area ever since those far off years, that charter indeed still holds these days and it allows Kendal the ability to hold a Saturday market.



The town of Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle and Penrith, it is gotten to by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by road using the A65, A684 and A6 routes.
