Review of Kendal: Enticing huge numbers of tourists both winter and summer, the ancient town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the fringe of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Already significant enough to be listed in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, Kendal has a story which extends back to largely undocumented days, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later Norman fortress give us proof of this.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal is largely built in locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is the 3rd biggest settlement in the county of Cumbria. In no way a huge town with around 28,500 citizens, Kendal does of course draw in numerous additional folks in the form of tourists who travel to this very popular spot. Various names were bestowed on Kendal over the centuries like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has been acclaimed over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, widely used by mountaineers and explorers as an energy food supplement, & said to have been discovered accidentally, 3 companies still produce the Mint Cake presently. From around the fourteenth century the wool business was immensely important for Kendal & various other important trades whereby its inhabitants have survived feature shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Story of Kendal: From the 1st to the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal district, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they built a fortification in around AD90, in due course developing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes so as to keep the fort in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held sway after the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The presence of the invading Normans brought about the erection, during the twelfth century, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most famous as the residence of the Parr family, in fact many reckon that Catherine Parr, Henry the Eighth's 6th wife was given birth to in the castle, though it's extremely unlikely because the castle was imagined to have been in a poor state of repair at the time she was given birth to.

Richard the First accorded a Market Charter to the town in 1189 in order to collect money for the Crusades, the charter for this crucial Market on Saturdays still holds good to this day.



The town of Kendal is located to the south of Penrith & Carlisle in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, it is reached by using the A6, A65 and A684, it might in addition be reached by train by means of the FirstTranspennine Express.
