Review of Kendal: An important area for the tourism industry stationed alongside the River Kent close to the edge of the Lakes, the ancient Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in huge numbers of tourists year round. An early Roman fort & twelfth century Norman fortress pay testimony to the town of Kendal's early history as it goes back to largely undocumented eras, the mention of it in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086 reveals its significance during those long gone years.

The 3rd largest settlement in Cumbria, although in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are generally made of grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Certainly not a huge town having roughly 28,000 citizens, Kendal does of course lure numerous additional people in the form of visitors who flock to this popular spot. Called Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal throughout the centuries.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is possibly best known for the manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, thought to have been made accidentally and later supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Adventure. From around the 14th C the production of wool was significant for Kendal & other types of important businesses whereby its locals have eked out a living include shoes, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

The Story of Kendal: From the first until the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal area, displacing the local Brigantes tribe, they erected a fort in roughly AD90, at some point doing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortress in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The arrival of the conquering Normans saw the construction, during the 12th c, of a stone castle (which we now know as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most recognized as the family home of the Parr family, actually many people suppose that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse arrived in this world there, although this is improbable as the castle was already in serious need of repair by the time she arrived in this world.

Kendal's right to have a Market on Saturdays goes back as far as 1189 when it was awarded its Market Charter (the charge for this helped fund the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter holds good even today and the market has proved extremely crucial for the area across the years.



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