Review of Kendal: An old town located on the boundaries of Lakeland in Cumbria, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and it's a vital region for tourists, luring large numbers of travellers all year round. An early Roman fortress and 12th century Norman castle show proof of the Kendal area's far off story as it stretches back to undocumented eras, the annotation of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 demonstrates its importance during those long departed eras.

The 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are pretty much built in gray limestone, gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal currently has a local population of around 29,000, although of course appreciable amounts of travellers head to the town especially in the summer season. Termed Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names given to Kendal through the eras.

A product for which Kendal has been acclaimed for years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountaineers & explorers as an energy food supplement, & thought to have been stumbled upon accidentally, three companies still make the Mint Cake at present. From the fourteenth century the wool industry was vital for the town and other major businesses by which its people have eked out a living included shoe making, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The History of Kendal: From the first to the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held command of the Kendal district, taking over from the Brigantes people, they put up a fort in roughly 90 AD, over time trading with the previously displaced Brigantes to keep the fortification supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway right after the Romans left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The appearance of the invading Normans resulted in the building, during the 12th century, of a substantial stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is possibly most commonly known as the residence of the Parr family, furthermore many suppose that Catherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth spouse was given birth to in the castle, however that's improbable because the castle was in a poor state of repair around the time she was given birth to.

Richard the First awarded a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 to help raise money for the Crusades, the charter for this essential Market on Saturdays still remains even today.



Reachable by road (A684, A6 or A65) or railway (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is positioned in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle.
