Review of Kendal: An important spot for the tourism industry positioned next to the River Kent close to the boundaries of the Lakes, the historical Cumbrian town of Kendal draws in huge numbers travellers all year long. An early Roman fort and twelfth century Norman fort provide proof of the Kendal area's early heritage as it stretches back to largely undocumented times, its reference in the 1086 Domesday Book indicates its importance throughout those long gone years.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal given that the majority of its properties are constructed of locally sourced gray limestone, the town was in the past a part of Westmorland but is today the third biggest settlement in the county of Cumbria. With a local population of around 29,000, Kendal is only a modest sized town, while the population grows to some extent by visiting sightseers who love this region. Termed Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are some of the names bestowed on Kendal over the generations.

Whilst Kendal is widely known as a traveller hotspot, the area has also long been famous for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later on promoted as a high energy food, that's been popular with explorers and climbers. Since the 14th C the production of wool was significant for Kendal and different significant industries whereby its citizens have survived are shoe making, the manufacturing of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

The Heritage of Kendal: The 1st building that had size in the Kendal district was built by the Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, by way of a fort. Brawls involving the Romans and a local tribe named the Brigantes, halted when they started to trade, until about the 4th c, when the Romans abandoned the fortress.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control once the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The arrival of the invading Normans saw the erection, in the twelfth century, of a stone castle (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is perhaps most recognized as the home of the Parr family, indeed many people believe that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry VIII's 6th wife was given birth to in the castle, whilst that is unlikely since the castle was reckoned to have been in a poor state of repair around the time she arrived in this world.

Kendal's legal right to host a Market on Saturdays starts back as far as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the associated fee from this helped to fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter remains to this day and the market has proved very important for the area across the generations.



The town of Kendal is positioned to the south of Carlisle & Penrith in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, the town is arrived at by way of the A6, A684 and A65, it can also be arrived at by train via the FirstTranspennine Express.
