The history of the settlement of Kendal travels back to largely undocumented days, a Roman fort was put up nearby in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century & the settlement was acknowledged in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The third biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though in times past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are generally made of gray limestone, gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town".
