Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is an important region for the tourism industry chiefly due to its close proximity to the Lake District National Park in addition to its own long historical past. The history of the settlement of Kendal extends back to undocumented times, a Roman fortification was built nearby in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the 12th century and the town was referred to in the 1086 Domesday Book.

In times past part of Westmorland, Kendal is largely constructed in locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the third largest town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal today has got a resident populace of approximately 29,000, though of course huge amounts of tourists go to the town particularly through the summertime. Several names have been given to Kendal throughout the years including Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is renowned as a tourism hotspot, the town has in addition long been known for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, subsequently publicized as an energy food supplement, that has been used often by explorers and mountaineers. Since the 14th C the production of wool was essential for the town & alternative significant industries by which its locals have made a living are shoes, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Heritage: The first occupants of the Kendal area were a people known as the Brigantes, though the first construction of any size was put in place by the Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fort in AD90, the Romans departed in roughly the 4th century.

Considerably later on a new fort or castle was built of the Motte and Bailey pattern, although that was supplanted by a castle of stone following the Norman conquest, this was in about the 12th century which we now know as Kendal Castle, remains still to be observed on Castle Hill. Considered by some historians to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the sixth wife of Henry the 8th , Kendal Castle was most certainly the home of the Parr family at about this time, although believed to be beyond repair at the moment she arrived in this world.

Richard the First accorded a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 in order to collect money for the Crusades, the charter for the important Market on Saturdays is still in place today.



The town of Kendal is located in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be arrived at by train by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving using the A684, A65 or A6 roads.
