Review of Kendal: A historical town located on the fringes of the Lakes National Park in Cumbria, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and is a significant region for tourism, drawing huge numbers of tourists all through the year. An early Roman fortification and twelfth century Norman fort present proof of the town of Kendal's far off background as it travels back to unrecorded days, its annotation in the Domesday Book of 1086 shows its importance throughout those long gone days.

The third most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although in the past a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are primarily built of grey limestone, earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal nowadays has a resident populace of roughly 28,500, although remember considerable numbers of visitors head to the area most significantly during the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names throughout the generations, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, alternative titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be acclaimed over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountain climbers & explorers as an energy food, and reputed to have been made by chance, 3 companies still produce the Mint Cake at present. From the 14th C the wool trade was valuable for Kendal & other types of notable trades by which its folk have eked out a living include shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco.

The History of Kendal: From the first until the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held power of the Kendal region, replacing the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fortress in around 90 AD, later on setting up trade with the dispossessed Brigantes so as to keep the fort supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control once the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The arrival of the conquering Normans led to the raising, in the 12th c, of a stone castle (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Assumed by many people as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th wife of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was clearly the family home of the Parr family at about this point, even though thought to be in a poor state of repair by the time Catherine was given birth to.

Kendal's right to run a Saturday market goes back as far as 1189 when it was awarded its Market Charter (the associated fee for this helped to fund Richard I's Crusades), the charter still remains today and the market has proved extremely significant for the town across the centuries.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it is arrived at by rail by means of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving using the A6, A65 or A684 highways.
