Review of Kendal: A historical town found on the boundaries of the Lakes National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal rests on the banks of the River Kent and is an important spot for tourists, drawing numerous travellers both summer and winter. An early Roman fort and 12th C Norman fortress pay testament to Kendal's far off story as it goes back to largely unrecorded times, the reference of it in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086 illustrates its significance even during those long past years.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal for the reason that a large percentage of of its houses are constructed of the local gray limestone, the town was in times past part of Westmorland but is now the 3rd most significant town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal presently has got a local population of about 28,500, although remember substantial numbers of tourists head to the area particularly through the summer time. Called Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal across the ages.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is most known for the manufacturing of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon unintentionally and eventually supplied for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Kendal has additionally been an important market town, and a few other industries whereby its inhabitants have eked out a living feature the manufacture of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool business.

Kendal Story: The initial inhabitants of the Kendal region were a tribe named the Brigantes, even though the first construction of any significance was erected by the invading Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fort in 90 AD, the Romans eventually departed in around the fourth century.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The arrival of the conquering Normans led to the raising, during the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Probably most famed for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been stated to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, yet because the castle was past repairing at the time she arrived in this world, that appears unlikely.

Richard I accorded a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 to help raise funds for his Crusades, the charter for the vital Saturday market holds good even now.



The town of Kendal is in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be reached by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by car using the A65, A6 & A684 highways.
