Review of Kendal: Enticing a lot of visitors during the year, the old town of Kendal, lies on the River Kent, at the borders of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Already significant enough to be described in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, The town of Kendal has a history which stretches back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortification (AD90), & subsequent Norman fortress show proof of this.

In the past a part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly constructed in the local gray limestone gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it's the 3rd most significant town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal these days has got a local population of about 28,500, though remember huge amounts of visitors travel to the area in particular through the summer months. Kendal as a settlement has been called a variety of names over the years, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, various other titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has been famous over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by mountain climbers and explorers as an energy foodstuff, & believed to have been made accidentally, 3 firms still produce the Mint Cake these days. From around the fourteenth century the wool industry was essential for Kendal and additional major industries by which its folk have earned a living are shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Historical Past of Kendal: From the first to the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal region, replacing the Brigantes people, they built a fort in around 90 AD, subsequently organising trade with the displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fort in supplies.

Considerably later on a new castle or fort was constructed in Motte and Bailey type, however that was replaced by a castle of stone soon after the Norman invasion, this was in roughly the twelfth century which we now know as Kendal Castle, parts still to be seen on Castle Hill. Perhaps most recognized as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often professed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr, however as it was beyond repair around the time she was born, that seems to be extremely unlikely.

Kendal's authority to host a Market on Saturdays goes back as far as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the fee from this helped to fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter still holds good today and the market has been very important for the area over the generations.



Kendal is positioned to the south of Carlisle & Penrith in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, England, UK, the town can be arrived at by way of the A65, A684 and A6, it may also be arrived at by rail using the FirstTranspennine Express.
