Review of Kendal: An ancient town found on the edge of the Lake District Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and it is a significant spot for tourism, attracting numerous travellers every year. Even then important enough to be named in the Domesday Book of 1086, Kendal has a history which extends back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortification (AD90), & later built Norman fortress offer proof of this.

The third most significant settlement in Cumbria, though traditionally a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are mostly made of grey limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". By no means a huge town with approximately 28,000 residents, Kendal does of course attract lots of extra people in the shape of sightseers who flock to this very popular area. Kendal as a settlement has had various names throughout the generations, in the Domesday Book it was called Cherchbi, additional titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

As well as tourism, Kendal is maybe best known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, suspected to have been stumbled upon unintentionally & later on supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition. Various industries by which the people of the town have earned a crust across the centuries feature the wool trade, shoes, tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, it has in addition been a major market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st up to fourth centuries AD, the Romans held power of the Kendal area, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fort in approximately 90 AD, in the end doing trade with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control after the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The arrival of the invading Normans saw the raising, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Understood by some historians as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the 6th spouse of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was most definitely the residence of the Parr family at around this moment in time, though believed to be in serious need of repair at the time Catherine arrived in this world.

Kendal's right to hold a Market on Saturdays dates back as far as 1189 when it was awarded its Market Charter (the fee from this helped to fund the Crusades of Richard I), the charter still remains to this day and the market has been very important for the area over the ages.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be reached by railway by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving via the A684, A65 or A6 routes.
