Review of Kendal: A vital area for tourism lying on either side of the River Kent close to the edge of the Lake District, the historical Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in significant numbers of tourists year round. An early Roman fortification & 12th century Norman fort pay testimony to the town of Kendal's long past history as it extends back to largely unrecorded eras, its mention in the Domesday Book, concluded in 1086 displays its significance during those long departed days.

The third largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though historically a part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are pretty much made of grey limestone, gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". With its local population of approximately 29,000, Kendal is only a moderate sized town, whilst this population expands somewhat by visiting travellers who like this area. Numerous names were given to Kendal across the ages such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is known as a traveller hotspot, the town has in addition long been renowned for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, subsequently marketed as a high energy foodstuff, that has been favoured by climbers & explorers. A few other trades whereby the people of the town have made a living across the generations include the wool business, shoes, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has additionally been an important market town.

Kendal Story: The 1st structure of any significance in the Kendal area was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in about AD90, by way of a fortress. Battles involving the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, concluded once they began to do trade, until approximately the 4th century, when the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway as soon as the Romans left, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The coming of the conquering Normans resulted in the building, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (which we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is possibly most recognized as the home of the Parr family, in fact some believe that Catherine Parr, Henry the Eighth's sixth wife arrived in this world there, whilst it's unlikely considering the castle was past repairing by the time she was given birth to.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 as a way to raise revenue for the Crusades, the charter for the significant Saturday market holds good these days.
