Review of Kendal: An ancient town found on the fringes of the Lake District National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal stands on the River Kent and it is a vital region for tourists, luring many travellers all year round. Even then vital enough to be declared in the Domesday Book of 1086, Kendal has a history which stretches back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later built Norman castle pay testimony to this.

The 3rd most significant town in the county of Cumbria, though in times past a part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are pretty much built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". With its resident population of around 28,000, Kendal is only a moderate sized town, whilst this population swells considerably by visiting sightseers who adore this region. Many titles were bestowed on Kendal across the generations for example Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is maybe best known for the production of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, supposed to have been stumbled upon by mistake & subsequently supplied for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Trip. From the fourteenth century the production of wool was immensely important for the town and other significant industries by which its inhabitants have earned a crust feature shoes, the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The earliest structure that had significance in the Kendal district was built by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, in the shape of a fortress. Arguments between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, stopped when they started to trade, until around the 4th c, once the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control after the Romans left, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The presence of the invading Normans saw the construction, in the twelfth century, of a castle of stone (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Possibly most recognized as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been alleged to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), but because it was past repairing around the time she was born, that would seem not very likely.

Kendal's right to maintain a Saturday market extends back as long ago as 1189 when it was given its Market Charter (the charge for this helped fund the Crusades of Richard I), the charter is still in place even today and the market was very significant for the town over the ages.
