Review of Kendal: On both sides of the River Kent in Cumbria, Kendal is a major region for tourism simply because of its near proximity to Lakeland as well as its own long historic past. An early Roman fortress & 12th C Norman castle pay testimony to the Kendal area's long past background as it goes back to unrecorded times, the mention of it in the 1086 Domesday Book shows its prominence during those long past years.

In the past part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mostly built of locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd largest town in the county of Cumbria. With a resident populace of around 28,586, Kendal is only a modest town, however this populace is swelled to some degree by visiting travellers who simply adore this region. Different titles were bestowed on Kendal through the generations such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is well known as a traveller hot spot, the area has also long been famed for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later publicized as an energy food supplement, that has been popular with mountain climbers and explorers. Various other businesses whereby the citizens of Kendal have eked out a living throughout the centuries are wool, shoes, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has also been a significant market town.

Kendal Heritage: The earliest settlers of the Kendal region were a local tribe known as the Brigantes, yet the first building of any importance was put in place by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fortification in the first century AD, the Romans subsequently left in roughly the 4th C.

After the Romans departed, the locality was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued right up until Norman conquest after which a castle of stone was built upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, you can still look at the ruins of what we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is possibly most famous as the family home of the Parr family, also many people believe that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the Eighth's sixth wife was born in the castle, though this is extremely unlikely considering the castle was already past repairing by the time she was born.

Kendal was granted its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has been vital for the town since those ancient years, this charter actually still holds to this day and it affords the town the right to have a Saturday market.



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