Review of Kendal: A significant spot for the tourism industry sitting on the banks of the River Kent near to the borders of the Lake District, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in huge numbers of tourists all year round. An early Roman fort and 12th C Norman fort give us proof of Kendal's early history as it extends back into the mists of time, its annotation in the 1086 Domesday Book indicates its importance even during those long departed eras.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal because the majority of of the houses are made from locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was in times past a part of Westmorland but is today the third largest town in the county of Cumbria. On no account a huge town having about 28,000 inhabitants, Kendal does of course draw in lots of extra folks in the form of travellers who travel to this desirable location. Many names were bestowed on Kendal across the generations such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product that Kendal has come to be renowned for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountaineers and explorers as an energy foodstuff, & reputed to have been discovered by mistake, 3 companies still manufacture the Mint Cake at present. Since the 14th C the wool industry was immensely important for the town and a few other significant businesses whereby its folk have eked out a living are shoes, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Heritage of Kendal: The first occupants of the Kendal area were a tribe the Brigantes, however the first structure of any significance was put up by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fortress in AD90, the Romans finally departed in approximately the fourth century.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held sway right after the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The arrival of the invading Normans saw the construction, during the twelfth century, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Maybe most well known as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been claimed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), yet seeing that it was in a poor state of repair at the moment she was born, that seems to be unlikely.

The town was issued a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has been essential for the region ever since those formative days, this charter indeed still holds even today and it grants Kendal the legal right to hold a market on Saturdays.

Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is arrived at by rail via the FirstTranspennine Express & by road by means of the A65, A6 or A684 roads.
