Review of Kendal: An important spot for tourism lying next to the River Kent near to the borders of the Lake District, the well known Cumbrian town of Kendal draws huge numbers tourists every year. Even then significant enough to be referred to in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, The Kendal area has a story which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman fortress pay testament to this.

Traditionally a part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mostly built of the local gray limestone giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it's the third largest town in Cumbria. Not at all a huge town having about 28,500 inhabitants, Kendal does of course draw in countless additional people in the form of travellers who travel to this favourite spot. Kendal as a settlement has been called a few names through the years, in the Domesday Book it was called Cherchbi, additional titles were Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

In addition to tourism, Kendal is most widely known for the manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon by chance and eventually supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Expedition. From the 14th century the wool trade was vital for Kendal and various noteworthy businesses whereby its folk have eked out a living included shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

The History of Kendal: From the first until the fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal district, taking over from the Brigantes tribe, they constructed a fort in roughly the first century AD, eventually doing trade with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fortification in supplies.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman invasion after which a castle of stone was built upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, you can still view remains of what we now call Kendal Castle. Possibly best known as the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often touted to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr, although since it was in serious need of repair about the time she arrived in this world, this seems to be not likely.

Richard the First awarded a Market Charter to the town in 1189 to help collect revenue for the Crusades, the charter for the essential Saturday market still holds good even now.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, UK, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be got to by rail by using the FirstTranspennine Express & by road using the A65, A684 and A6 highways.
