Review of Kendal: A historical town located on the fringe of Lakeland in Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and it is a vital spot for tourism, bringing in many travellers throughout the year. The history of the Kendal area goes back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was built in the area in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the 12th century & the town was recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The third largest settlement in Cumbria, although historically a part of Westmorland, the houses of Kendal are mainly built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal at present has a resident populace of approximately 28,500, though remember huge amounts of visitors travel to the area particularly during the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has been called various names over the eras, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, other names were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be widley known over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of mountain climbers & explorers as a high energy foodstuff, & reputed to have been discovered by chance, 3 firms still manufacture the Mint Cake today. From around the 14th century the wool business was vital for the town and a few other significant industries by which its locals have eked out a living were shoe making, the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco.

The Story of Kendal: From the first to the 4th centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal area, dislodging the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fort in approximately 90 AD, after a while trading with the dispossessed Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fort supplied.

A lot later a new castle or fort was built in the Motte and Bailey layout, although this was supplanted by a substantial stone castle following the Norman conquest, in roughly the 12th c and now called Kendal Castle, parts still to be observed on Castle Hill. Perhaps most recognized as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been stated to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), however since the castle was past repairing about the time she was born, this would seem to be unlikely.

The town was awarded its Market Charter in 1189, and the market has long been significant for the town since those long past years, the charter in fact is still in place these days and it grants Kendal the right to hold a Saturday market.



Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, UK, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is reached by rail via the FirstTranspennine Express and by driving by means of the A6, A684 or A65 highways.
