Review of Kendal: An important area for the tourism industry standing on either side of the River Kent on the edge of the Lake District National Park, the popular Cumbrian town of Kendal draws in numerous travellers both summer and winter. The history of Kendal stretches back to largely unrecorded eras, a Roman fortification was built near by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century & the settlement was recognized in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The third biggest town in Cumbria, though in the past a part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are typically constructed in gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal today has got a resident populace of approximately 28,586, though of course appreciable numbers of travellers flock to the area especially during the summer months. Several titles were given to Kendal across the ages such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famed for years is Kendal Mint Cake, much used by explorers & mountaineers as an energy food supplement, & suspected to have been discovered by mistake, three companies still manufacture the Mint Cake at present. Since the 14th C the wool business was really important for the town & other significant trades whereby its locals have earned a living feature shoes, the manufacturing of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Heritage of Kendal: The earliest building of any importance in the Kendal region was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in about the first century AD, by way of a fort. Tussles between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, ended after they started to trade, until approximately the 4th c, once the Romans left.

Once the Romans departed, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up until the Norman invasion after which a castle of stone was built upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there still exist the ruins of what we now call Kendal Castle. Possibly best known for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often believed to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however since the castle was in serious need of repair around the time she was born, that seems to be not very likely.

The town was accorded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has always been important for the town ever since those ancient years, this charter in fact still holds these days and it grants Kendal the legal right to have a market on Saturdays.
