Review of Kendal: Standing on the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a significant spot for the tourism industry because of its proximity to the Lake District Park added to its own extended ancient past. An early Roman fortress and 12th century Norman castle pay testament to Kendal's early history as it goes back to undocumented times, the reference of it in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its importance even in those long departed times.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal due to the fact that many of the houses are constructed of the local gray limestone, the town was in times past a part of Westmorland but is now the third largest town in the county of Cumbria. Kendal today has got a local populace of approximately 28,500, although of course considerable numbers of visitors travel to the area particularly in the summer season. Listed as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are some of the names given to Kendal over the centuries.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famous over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountain climbers & explorers as a high energy food, and believed to have been made by chance, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake today. Alternative trades by which the locals of Kendal have made a living over the generations are the wool trade, shoes, tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, it has also been an important market town.

The History of Kendal: The earliest construction that had importance in the Kendal district was raised by the invading Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, in the shape of a fortress. Scrapping involving the Romans and a tribe called the Brigantes, ended after they began to do trade, until around the 4th c, when the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control after the Roman invaders left, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The appearance of the conquering Normans triggered the erection, during the 12th century, of a strong stone castle (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is maybe most famous as the home of the Parr family, indeed many suspect that Catherine Parr, Henry the 8th's 6th wife arrived in this world in the castle, although it's extremely unlikely since the castle was already in serious need of repair during the time she arrived in this world.

The town's authority to hold a Market on Saturdays harps back as far as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the associated fee from this helped to pay for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter still remains to this day and the market has been really vital for the area across the years.



Painless to get to by road (A684, A65 & A6) or train (FirstTranspennine Express), the town of Kendal is found in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England, United Kingdom, south of Carlisle & Penrith.
