Review of Kendal: A vital area for tourism lying on either side of the River Kent on the fringes of the Lake District, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal draws in numerous travellers each year. An early Roman fort and 12th C Norman fort pay testament to the Kendal area's far off history as it goes back into the mists of time, the reference of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its value throughout those long gone years.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal due to the fact that the majority of the houses are constructed of locally sourced gray limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is today the third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. With its resident populace of approximately 28,000, Kendal is only a modest sized town, however the populace swells somewhat by visiting sightseers who love this spot. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are among the names given to Kendal throughout the ages.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famed for years is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of explorers and mountaineers as an energy food supplement, & believed to have been stumbled upon inadvertently, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake at present. Kendal has also been an important market town, & various other businesses whereby its locals have earned a living were the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool industry.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the first up to fourth centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal district, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they put up a fort in around AD90, in the end trading with the dispossessed Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fortress in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) ruled once the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The arrival of the invading Normans saw the building, during the 12th c, of a stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Presumed by some historians as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was without doubt the residence of the Parr family at approximately this point, though thought to be in a poor state of repair during the time she was given birth to.

Richard the First awarded a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 to help generate revenue for the Crusades, the charter for the essential Saturday market still holds good even now.



Reachable by car (A684, A65 or A6) or rail (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal can be found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle.
