Review of Kendal: On both sides of the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a significant spot for tourists due to its proximity to the Lake District Park in addition to its own remarkable historic past. An early Roman fortification and 12th C Norman castle pay testament to the town of Kendal's long past background as it travels back to largely undocumented eras, its annotation in the 1086 Domesday Book illustrates its importance during those long past days.

The third largest town in Cumbria, though in times past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are typically constructed in grey limestone, gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Not at all a huge town having roughly 28,000 residents, Kendal does of course lure countless extra folks in the shape of sightseers who flock to this well-liked area. A variety of titles were given to Kendal through the ages like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is accepted as a traveller hotspot, the area has in addition long been acclaimed for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later on sold as a high energy food, that's been popular with mountain climbers & explorers. Kendal has furthermore been an important market town, & additional industries by which its people have survived are the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoe making and the wool industry.

Kendal Story: From the 1st up to 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held control of the Kendal region, dispossessing the Brigantes tribe, they erected a fort in roughly 90 AD, after a while setting up trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fort supplied.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the region was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case up to the Norman invasion after which a stone castle was built upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still explore the remnants of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Maybe most famous as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been touted to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr, but as it was beyond repair during the time she was born, this would seem to be unlikely.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 in order to generate revenue for the Crusades, the charter for that crucial Saturday market still holds good to this day.
