Review of Kendal: Appealing to a great number of visitors during the year, the historic town of Kendal, lies on the River Kent, near the edge of the Lake District Park in Cumbria. An early Roman fortification & twelfth century Norman fortress provide proof of the town of Kendal's early story as it goes back to largely undocumented eras, the reference of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 indicates its value throughout those long past years.

In the past part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mainly built in locally sourced grey limestone gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is actually the 3rd most significant town in Cumbria. Not a large town having about 29,000 inhabitants, Kendal does of course pull in countless additional folks in the form of sightseers who travel to this well-liked spot. Many different titles were bestowed on Kendal over the years for example Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has been famous for years is Kendal Mint Cake, frequently used by explorers and mountaineers as a high energy food, & reputed to have been stumbled upon unintentionally, 3 firms still manufacture the Mint Cake presently. Alternative industries by which the people of the town have earned a crust through the eras were the wool industry, shoe making, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has in addition been an important market town.

Kendal Heritage: The first building of any magnitude in the Kendal district was put in place by the Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, in the shape of a fort. Tussles between the Romans and a tribe called the Brigantes, concluded when they begun to trade with each other, until around the 4th century, at which time the Romans abandoned the fort.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued up until the Norman conquest after which a castle of stone was constructed on Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there still exist what remains of which we now know as Kendal Castle. Probably most recognized as the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often reported to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), although as the castle was in serious need of repair about the time she was given birth to, this would seem not very likely.

The town's legal right to hold a Saturday market dates back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the charge for this helped to pay for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter holds good these days and the market was very crucial for the town across the generations.



The town of Kendal is located in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, United Kingdom, to the south of Penrith & Carlisle, it can be got to by railway by means of the FirstTranspennine Express and by car using the A65, A6 or A684 routes.
