Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is a vital spot for the tourism industry due to its proximity to the Lake District added to its own long ancient past. An early Roman fortification and 12th century Norman fort give proof of the town of Kendal's long past heritage as it extends back to largely unrecorded days, the mention of it in the 1086 Domesday Book demonstrates its prominence throughout those long past days.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal due to the fact that nearly all of its properties are built from locally sourced greyish limestone, the town was historically a part of Westmorland but is these days the 3rd most significant built-up area in Cumbria. Not at all a large town with about 28,500 inhabitants, Kendal does of course attract a lot of extra people in the shape of travellers who flock to this well known location. Known as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names given to Kendal across the ages.

In addition to the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most recognized for the production of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been stumbled upon accidentally & eventually supplied as an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Adventure. Additional industries whereby the citizens of Kendal have survived across the years included wool, shoe making, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has also been an important market town.

The Story of Kendal: From the 1st until the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held command of the Kendal area, replacing the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fort in roughly the first century AD, ultimately setting up trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

A whole lot later a new fort or castle was constructed in Motte and Bailey style, though this was superceded by a stone castle following the Norman conquest, dating from around the 12th century which we now know as Kendal Castle, ruins still to be seen on Castle Hill. Imagined by many as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-48), the sixth spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was unquestionably the residence of the Parr family at about this time, though thought to be in a poor state of repair at the time Catherine was born.

Kendal's legal right to maintain a Saturday market goes back as long ago as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the fee from which helped to pay for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter holds good even now and the market has been extremely vital for the town across the years.



Simple to get to by car (A65, A6 or A684) or train (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is positioned in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle.
