Review of Kendal: Enticing numerous travellers each and every year, the historic town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, near the borders of the Lakes National Park in The county of Cumbria. An early Roman fortress & twelfth century Norman fortress pay testimony to the Kendal area's far off background as it travels back to undocumented times, the annotation of it in the Domesday Book, carried out in 1086 reveals its importance throughout those long past days.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal because a lot of of the buildings are made from locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is now the third biggest built-up area in Cumbria. With a local populace of roughly 28,586, Kendal is just a modest sized town, although this populace increases to some extent by visiting visitors who appreciate this spot. Many different names have been given to Kendal throughout the ages like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides the tourism industry, Kendal is best known for the manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been made by mistake & subsequently provided for an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Adventure. A few other businesses by which the citizens of Kendal have earned a living through the generations included wool, shoes, pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, it has also been an essential market town.

Kendal Story: From the first up to fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held control of the Kendal district, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they constructed a fortress in around 90 AD, eventually trading with the dispossessed Brigantes so as to keep the fortification in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway after the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were the chief inhabitants. The arrival of the invading Normans saw the building, in the twelfth century, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is maybe most famed as the home of the Parr family, indeed many people suppose that Catherine Parr, Henry the 8th's sixth spouse arrived in this world there, though this is not very likely since the castle was already past repairing at the time she was born.

Richard the First granted a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 in order to collect money for the Crusades, the charter for that vital Saturday market is still in place even now.



Accessible by driving (A6, A684 or A65) or railway (FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith.
