Review of Kendal: An age-old town found on the fringe of the Lakes National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal sits on the River Kent and is an important area for tourism, drawing a lot of visitors during the year. The story of the town of Kendal stretches back to a undocumented era, a Roman fort was erected nearby in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the 12th century & the settlement was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal due to the fact that virtually all of the buildings are made from the local greyish limestone, the settlement was in times past a part of Westmorland but is today the third largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria. Kendal these days has a resident population of about 29,000, though of course appreciable quantities of sightseers travel to the area particularly during the summer season. Several names were bestowed on Kendal through the ages like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has been widely recognized for years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by explorers and mountaineers as an energy foodstuff, & thought to have been discovered inadvertently, three firms still produce the Mint Cake currently. Alternative trades by which the inhabitants of Kendal have earned a crust across the years include the wool business, shoe making, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been a major market town.

Kendal Story: The earliest structure that had importance in the Kendal district was built by the Romans at Watercrook in about AD90, in the shape of a fortress. Conflicts involving the Romans and a tribe called the Brigantes, finished when they began to trade, until around the fourth century, at which time the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) ruled right after the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The appearance of the invading Normans saw the construction, during the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Considered by some people as being the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the sixth spouse of Henry the 8th , Kendal Castle was without doubt the home of the Parr family at around this point, though believed to be in serious need of repair by the time Catherine arrived in this world.

The town's legal right to have a Saturday market starts back as long ago as 1189 when it was given its Market Charter (the fee from this raised funds for Richard I's Crusades), the charter still holds good to this day and the market has proved extremely crucial for the area across the generations.



Convenient to get to by driving (A6, A65 & A684) or train (the FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is positioned in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle.
