Review of Kendal: A significant spot for tourists located on the banks of the River Kent on the fringe of the Lake District National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal draws huge numbers of tourists all year round. The history of the Kendal area travels back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was erected in the area in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the twelfth century & the settlement was documented in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal simply because a large percentage of of the properties are made from the local gray limestone, the town was in the past a part of Westmorland but is currently the third most significant settlement in Cumbria. With a resident population of approximately 29,000, Kendal is just a moderate sized town, even though this populace grows considerably by visiting visitors who like this location. Several names were bestowed on Kendal through the eras for instance Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides tourism, Kendal is probably best known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, thought to have been stumbled upon unintentionally and later provided as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Journey. Since the 14th century the wool industry was important for the town & other types of notable businesses whereby its locals have earned a living were shoe making, the manufacture of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st to the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held control of the Kendal area, replacing the local Brigantes tribe, they raised a fort in approximately AD90, eventually doing trade with the displaced Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fortification in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control as soon as the Roman invaders left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The coming of the invading Normans saw the building, during the twelfth century, of a substantial stone castle (which we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably best known as the family home of the Parr family, actually many people suspect that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse arrived in this world in the castle, though it's improbable as the castle was imagined to have been in serious need of repair by the time she was given birth to.

Kendal's legal right to maintain a Saturday market starts back as far as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the associated fee for this raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter holds good these days and the market has been extremely crucial for the area through the generations.



Accessible by driving (A6, A65 or A684) or train (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, UK, south of Carlisle & Penrith.
