Review of Kendal: Bringing in a great number of visitors throughout the year, the historic town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, at the borders of Lakeland in The county of Cumbria. Already important enough to be documented in the Domesday Book of 1086, The town of Kendal has a story which extends back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman fort pay testimony to this.

In times past a part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mainly built of locally sourced gray limestone giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is actually the third most significant settlement in Cumbria. Kendal presently has got a local populace of approximately 28,000, although of course huge quantities of tourists go to the area most significantly during the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has been called quite a few names through the eras, in the Domesday Book it was referred to as Cherchbi, other names were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Aside from the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe most recognized for its production of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been made by mistake and eventually provided as an energy food to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Trip. From around the 14th C the wool business was very important for the town & other important trades by which its inhabitants have made a living were shoes, the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Story: The initial settlers of the Kendal region were a people known as the Brigantes, even though the 1st building of any significance was put up by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fortress in AD90, the Romans departed in approximately the fourth century.

Once the Romans left, the region was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation till the Norman invasion when a substantial stone castle was raised on Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still look at what remains of what we now call Kendal Castle. Perhaps most commonly acknowledged as the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been claimed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), although seeing that it was past repairing at the moment she arrived in this world, this seems unlikely.

Kendal's right to run a Saturday market dates back as far as 1189 when it was given its Market Charter (the charge from which helped to pay for Richard I's Crusades), the charter still holds good these days and the market has proved extremely significant for the town across the ages.



Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith and Carlisle, it can be got to by rail by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by car by way of the A65, A6 or A684 routes.
