Review of Kendal: Luring huge numbers of tourists both summer and winter, the old town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, at the edge of the Lakes in Cumbria. An early Roman fort and 12th century Norman castle offer proof of the town of Kendal's long past story as it extends back to a undocumented era, its annotation in the 1086 Domesday Book illustrates its importance during those long gone eras.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal due to the fact that a large percentage of of the properties are built from the local grey limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is today the 3rd biggest town in the county of Cumbria. In no way a large town with around 28,000 occupants, Kendal does of course attract lots of additional folks in the form of visitors who travel to this prominent location. Recorded as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal over the generations.

Even though Kendal is famous as a tourism hotspot, the town has also long been famed for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on publicized as a high energy food supplement, which has been favoured by explorers and mountain climbers. Since the 14th C the production of wool was immensely important for the town & a few other significant industries whereby its locals have made a living are shoes, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Historical Past: From the first up to 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held control of the Kendal area, dispossessing the Brigantes people, they raised a fort in approximately 90 AD, in the end doing trade with the displaced Brigantes to keep the fortification in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held sway once the Romans left, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The presence of the invading Normans saw the erection, in the 12th century, of a castle of stone (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Probably most recognized for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has frequently been reported to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however as it was in a poor state of repair during the time she was given birth to, this appears to be not likely.

Kendal was accorded a Market Charter in 1189, and the market was always significant for the region since those formative days, the charter in truth still remains these days and it affords the town the authority to host a market on Saturdays.



Reachable by driving (A65, A684 and A6) or rail (the FirstTranspennine Express), Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District the county of Cumbria, in England, UK, south of Penrith & Carlisle.
