Review of Kendal: An important region for tourism lying on either side of the River Kent on the boundaries of the Lakes, the ancient Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to huge numbers of tourists each and every year. An early Roman fort & twelfth century Norman fortress pay testimony to the town of Kendal's early background as it travels back to a undocumented era, its reference in the 1086 Domesday Book displays its significance even during those long gone eras.

The 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although in times past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are generally built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal currently has a local population of roughly 28,000, although of course considerable numbers of sightseers travel to the town especially in the summertime. A number of names have been given to Kendal through the years including Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides tourism, Kendal is probably most recognized for its manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been made by chance & later supplied for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure. Kendal has additionally been a noteworthy market town, & alternative businesses whereby its citizens have survived were the manufacturing of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoe making and the wool business.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held power of the Kendal region, dispossessing the local Brigantes tribe, they built a fortress in about 90 AD, eventually trading with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortress supplied.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation up until the Norman invasion when a stone castle was raised upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, you can still pay a visit to the remnants of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Assumed by some people to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the sixth wife of Henry the 8th , Kendal Castle was definitely the residence of the Parr family at approximately this moment in time, although believed to be beyond repair at the time she was born.

The town's authority to maintain a Saturday market extends back as long ago as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the charge from which raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter still remains even now and the market has been really crucial for the town through the centuries.
