Review of Kendal: On the banks of the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is a vital region for tourists due to its proximity to Lakeland in addition to its own extended ancient past. An early Roman fortification & 12th century Norman fort pay testimony to the town of Kendal's long past background as it goes back to largely undocumented eras, the annotation of it in the Domesday Book, carried out in 1086 illustrates its significance even in those long departed years.

The third most significant settlement in Cumbria, though historically part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are principally built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal at present has got a resident populace of approximately 28,000, though remember considerable numbers of tourists flock to the area most significantly during the summer time. Recorded as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal through the centuries.

A product that Kendal has been widely recognized for years is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of mountain climbers & explorers as an energy food, & reputed to have been stumbled upon inadvertently, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake these days. From the fourteenth century the wool industry was important for Kendal & various noteworthy industries by which its inhabitants have earned a living were shoe making, the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

The Heritage of Kendal: The 1st structure that had size in the Kendal district was raised by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in roughly AD90, in the shape of a fortress. Brawls between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, stopped after they began to trade, until around the fourth century, once the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The arrival of the conquering Normans led to the building, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most widely known as the family home of the Parr family, certainly many people think that Catherine Parr (1512-1548), Henry the Eighth's 6th wife arrived in this world there, although that is improbable as the castle was thought to have been in serious need of repair at the moment she was born.

Kendal was granted a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has always been essential for the region ever since those long past days, this charter in truth is still in place these days and it grants Kendal the authority to hold a Saturday market.
