Review of Kendal: Enticing a lot of tourists all year long, the historic town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, on the edge of the Lake District in Cumbria. An early Roman fortification and 12th C Norman fort pay testament to Kendal's early history as it extends back to undocumented times, its mention in the Domesday Book, concluded in 1086 illustrates its significance throughout those long gone eras.

In the past a part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mainly made of the local gray limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd most significant town in the county of Cumbria. With its resident population of approximately 28,500, Kendal is just a moderate sized town, although this population swells considerably by visiting visitors who adore this spot. Named Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal throughout the ages.

A product that Kendal has been acclaimed over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of explorers and mountaineers as an energy food supplement, & understood to have been stumbled upon by mistake, 3 firms still manufacture the Mint Cake presently. Kendal has additionally been a significant market town, & additional businesses by which its folk have made a living feature the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoe making and the wool trade.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first occupants of the Kendal area were a tribe called the Brigantes, though the 1st construction of any significance was raised by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fort in AD90, the Romans in due course departed in approximately the 4th century.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled right after the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The coming of the conquering Normans saw the building, in the 12th century, of a substantial stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is possibly best known as the residence of the Parr family, in fact many think that Catherine Parr, Henry VIII's 6th wife was given birth to there, whilst that's not very likely because the castle was imagined to have been beyond repair about the time she was given birth to.

Kendal was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and this market was always significant for the region ever since those early days, the charter in truth is still in place these days and it allows the town the authority to hold a Saturday market.



Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is arrived at by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by car via the A6, A65 and A684 highways.
