Review of Kendal: Appealing to a great number of visitors throughout the year, the ancient town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, at the edge of the Lakes in The county of Cumbria. Even then significant enough to be named in the Domesday Book, written in 1086, The settlement of Kendal has a story which travels back to undocumented eras, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later Norman fortress provide evidence of this.

The third largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though historically a part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mainly built of grey limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal currently has a local populace of approximately 28,586, although in fact significant numbers of visitors head to the area most significantly during the summertime. Labelled Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal throughout the ages.

A product for which Kendal has been renowned for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountain climbers and explorers as an energy food supplement, & reputed to have been stumbled upon accidentally, three companies still make the Mint Cake these days. Since the 14th C the wool business was significant for the town & various important industries whereby its inhabitants have survived included shoe making, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Heritage: The 1st construction that had importance in the Kendal district was put in place by the invading Romans at Watercrook in around AD90, in the form of a fortification. Tussles between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, terminated when they began to do trade, until roughly the 4th c, when the Romans left.

Once the Roman invaders left, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted till the Norman conquest when a stone castle was raised upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still the remnants of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Probably most commonly known as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been stated to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), yet because it was past repairing during the time she arrived in this world, this appears to be improbable.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to the town in 1189 in order to raise revenue for the Crusades, the charter for the crucial Market on Saturdays still holds good even today.



Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, UK, to the south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is reached by train by way of the FirstTranspennine Express & by driving by using of the A684, A6 or A65 highways.
