Review of Kendal: Popular with a great number of tourists throughout every season, the ancient town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the fringes of Lakeland in Cumbria. Already vital enough to be noted in the 1086 Domesday Book, Kendal has a story which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fort (AD90), and subsequent Norman castle pay testament to this.

Historically part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly built of locally sourced grey limestone gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd most significant town in Cumbria. With a resident population of roughly 28,500, Kendal is a modest sized town, whilst this population swells to some extent by visiting tourists who appreciate this area. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was labelled as Cherchbi, alternative names include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be widely recognized for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountaineers & explorers as a high energy food, & suspected to have been stumbled upon accidentally, three companies still make the Mint Cake presently. Since the 14th century the wool industry was valuable for the town & a few other major trades whereby its folk have earned a living include shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

Kendal Historical Past: From the 1st until the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal region, displacing the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fortification in about AD90, over time trading with the dispossessed Brigantes in order to keep the fortification supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans left, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The arrival of the conquering Normans saw the building, during the 12th c, of a substantial stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is maybe most recognized as the home of the Parr family, indeed some suppose that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse arrived in this world there, whilst that is not very likely since the castle was actually in a poor state of repair about the time she was given birth to.

The town was accorded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been significant for the region ever since those far off days, this charter actually is still in place even today and it allows the town the legal right to hold a Saturday market.



The town of Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be reached by train via the FirstTranspennine Express & by road by means of the A684, A65 or A6 roads.
