Review of Kendal: On both sides of the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a significant spot for tourists mainly because of its proximity to the Lake District in addition to its own long historical past. The story of the Kendal area stretches back into the mists of time, a Roman fortress was put up close by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built during the twelfth century and the settlement was listed in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are mainly built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Definitely not a large town with roughly 28,500 residents, Kendal does of course lure many additional folks in the form of travellers who flock to this very popular region. Kendal as a settlement has had a variety of names throughout the generations, in the Domesday Book it was labelled as Cherchbi, additional titles were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most commonly known for the production of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon by chance & later on provided for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Journey. Different trades whereby the people of Kendal have eked out a living over the generations are the wool business, shoe making, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has furthermore been an important market town.

Kendal Story: From the first up to fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal district, displacing the local Brigantes people, they put up a fort in about AD90, at some point trading with the previously displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fortification in supplies.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on right up until Norman invasion after which a stone castle was constructed on Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still visit remains of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is probably most widely known as the family home of the Parr family, indeed some suspect that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry VIII's 6th spouse was born there, though this is not very likely because the castle was actually in a poor state of repair about the time she arrived in this world.

Kendal was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has always been important for the town since those early days, this charter in truth is still in place to this day and it gives the town the legal right to hold a market on Saturdays.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, in England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be arrived at by rail by using the FirstTranspennine Express and by road via the A684, A65 or A6 routes.
