Review of Kendal: A vital area for tourists sitting on the banks of the River Kent near to the fringe of the Lake District, the historical Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in huge numbers of tourists every year. Even then important enough to be declared in the 1086 Domesday Book, The settlement of Kendal has a history which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later Norman castle pay testimony to this.

The third most significant built-up area in Cumbria, although in the past a part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are typically built in grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". With a resident populace of about 28,500, Kendal is a modest town, although the populace is swelled to some degree by visiting tourists who like this region. Kendal as a settlement has been called a few names throughout the eras, in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Cherchbi, different titles were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Aside from the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe best known for the production of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been discovered by mistake & later on provided for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Expedition. From the 14th C the production of wool was very important for Kendal and various major businesses by which its people have survived include shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The earliest structure of any importance in the Kendal district was built by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in roughly AD90, in the form of a fortification. Rivalry involving the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, stopped once they begun to trade with each other, until approximately the 4th century, at which time the Romans departed.

Once the Romans left, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation up until the Norman invasion after which a stone castle was erected on Castle Hill in the 12th century, there still exist remains of what we now call Kendal Castle. Possibly best known for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been alleged to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however seeing that it was in a poor state of repair by the time she was given birth to, this would seem extremely unlikely.

The town's authority to run a Saturday market goes back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the charge from which helped fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter remains to this day and the market has been very important for the town throughout the years.



The town of Kendal is situated in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria county, England, UK, south of Carlisle & Penrith, it is arrived at by railway by means of the FirstTranspennine Express and by car using the A65, A684 and A6 highways.
