Review of Kendal: Luring huge numbers of tourists both winter and summer, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, near the fringe of the Lakes National Park in Cumbria. Already significant enough to be outlined in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086, Kendal has a history which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fort (AD90), & later built Norman fort give us evidence of this.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal simply because most of the buildings are constructed of locally sourced grey limestone, the town was in times past part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd largest settlement in Cumbria. Kendal these days has a resident population of approximately 28,500, though of course appreciable numbers of sightseers flock to the town particularly in the summer months. Numerous titles have been bestowed on Kendal through the ages for example Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Aside from the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most recognized for its production of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, understood to have been stumbled upon accidentally & subsequently provided as an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Kendal has in addition been a noteworthy market town, and additional trades by which its locals have made a living were the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoe making and the production of wool.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The earliest building that had importance in the Kendal area was built by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, in the shape of a fort. Fighting between the Romans and a local tribe referred to as the Brigantes, ended when they began to trade, until around the 4th century, once the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held sway as soon as the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The presence of the invading Normans resulted in the erection, in the 12th century, of a substantial stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is possibly most commonly acknowledged as the family home of the Parr family, actually many people suppose that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the Eighth's 6th wife arrived in this world in the castle, although it's not likely since the castle was believed to have been in a poor state of repair around the time she was born.

Kendal's authority to maintain a Saturday market dates back as far as 1189 at which time it was accorded its Market Charter (the charge for this raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter holds good even today and the market was very vital for the town through 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 is reached by railway by using the FirstTranspennine Express & by road by way of the A6, A65 & A684 roads.
