Review of Kendal: Dissected by the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is a major region for tourism due to its nearness to the Lakes along with its own captivating historic past. The history of Kendal stretches back to largely undocumented eras, a Roman fortress was built close by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century and the town was documented in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The third most significant town in the county of Cumbria, though traditionally a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are mainly built of gray limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal today has a resident populace of roughly 29,000, although of course considerable amounts of visitors head to the area especially through the summer months. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was known as Cherchbi, other names include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Whilst Kendal is known as a tourism hotspot, the town has also long been well known for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later presented as a high energy food, which has been popular with mountaineers & explorers. Additional industries whereby the citizens of Kendal have earned a living over the centuries are wool, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has also been an important market town.

Kendal Historical Past: From the 1st until the fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal region, taking over from the Brigantes tribe, they raised a fortress in about 90 AD, in the end organising trade with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fort supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) ruled as soon as the Roman invaders left, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were the chief inhabitants. The coming of the invading Normans saw the raising, in the 12th century, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Possibly best known as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been professed to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), although as it was in serious need of repair about the time she was given birth to, this looks extremely unlikely.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to the town in 1189 as a way to collect money for his Crusades, the charter for that important Saturday market holds good to this day.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be got to by train via the FirstTranspennine Express & by road via the A684, A6 or A65 roads.
