All about Kendal

The Days Inn hotel located in Kendal enjoys a fantastic location on the edge of the English Lake District. The historic market town of Kendal is just a 15 minute drive away where there are plenty of shops, restaurants and attractions including Kendal Museum, the Brewery Arts Centre and Abbot Hall Art Gallery. It's the third largest settlement in Cumbria, behind Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness with it's roots dating back to the Normans and now consisting of a beautiful array of fortified alleyways known locally as yards, all surrounding the main high street which has been noted for many exports including the Kendal mint cake, a particular type of wool-based cloth called Kendal Green and later, the production of Tobacco and snuff. Kendal stands on the river Kent, surrounded by low hills and is just a short distance from the Lake District which makes it an ideal location for exploration or a quiet getaway.

A brief history of Kendal

Kendal lies 19 miles north of Lancaster and is a market town with a population of around 28 thousand. It lies on the River Kent and although this may have been advantageous to early trade and a source of fresh water for it's inhabitants, it is now merely a part of the region's natural beauty. For many hundreds of years it was known as 'Kirkbie Kendal' meaning 'village with a church (kirkbie) in the valley of the River Kent (kendal)'. The production of wool was notable amongst the region's industry, particularly a hard-wearing fabric known as Kendal Green which was worn by foresters as referred to by Shakespeare in Henry IV, Part 1. It was also mentioned in many of the songs and literature of slaves in the Americas during the slave trade era. It's oldest remains are that of a Roman fort which lies approximately 2 miles south of the present day town centre, now buried under fields. Much of the findings from this region are on display at the Kendal museum. The area's natural boggy and waterlogged plains were inherently hazardous for travellers and horses, yet it wasn't until 1703 that the town received an order to create and maintain a through road. There have been many forts and castles in Kendal, the last one fell to ruin in the late 12th century.

Kendal mint cake

One of the more famous exports of Kendal is a glucose-based confectionery with a mint centre and chocolate coating, reportedly discovered by accident when Joseph Wiper was experimenting with recipes for glacier mints.
