Review of Kendal: A significant region for tourists sitting beside the River Kent on the fringe of the Lake District National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in numerous travellers all through the year. An early Roman fortress and twelfth century Norman fort pay testament to the Kendal area's early story as it extends back to largely undocumented eras, its annotation in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its significance during those long gone times.

The 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though in the past a part of Westmorland, the houses of Kendal are generally made of grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal currently has a resident population of approximately 28,000, although remember appreciable numbers of visitors travel to the area in particular through the summer months. Kendal as a settlement has had a variety of names over the years, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, alternative names were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Whilst Kendal is known as a tourism destination, the town has also long been acclaimed for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later sold as a high energy food supplement, which has long been popular with climbers & explorers. Various industries whereby the people of Kendal have made a living across the ages feature wool, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been a noteworthy market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st up to 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held control of the Kendal region, taking over from the Brigantes tribe, they built a fort in approximately 90 AD, subsequently setting up trade with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortress in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were the chief inhabitants. The coming of the conquering Normans led to the erection, in the 12th c, of a substantial stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Considered by some historians as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the 6th wife of Henry the 8th , Kendal Castle was without a doubt the residence of the Parr family at around this point, even though reckoned to be in serious need of repair during the time Catherine arrived in this world.

Kendal was given a Market Charter in 1189, and the market has always been important for the region since those ancient years, that charter indeed still remains even today and it gives the town the ability to hold a market on Saturdays.



Accessible by road (A65, A684 & A6) or railway (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith & Carlisle.
