Review of Kendal: An ancient town found on the edge of the Lake District Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and is a major area for the tourism industry, drawing many visitors throughout every season. The story of the Kendal area stretches back to a undocumented era, a Roman fortification was constructed close by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century & the town was acknowledged in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The 3rd most significant built-up area in Cumbria, though in the past a part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are generally built of grey limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal these days has got a local population of about 28,586, although of course huge quantities of travellers flock to the area especially through the summertime. Known as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are among the names bestowed on Kendal across the eras.

Besides the tourism industry, Kendal is perhaps best known for the manufacturing of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been made inadvertently & subsequently provided as an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Trip. Kendal has also been a vital market town, & different businesses whereby its locals have earned a living are the manufacture of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoe making and the wool trade.

Kendal Heritage: The earliest construction that had magnitude in the Kendal district was put in place by the invading Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, by way of a fort. Tussles involving the Romans and a tribe named the Brigantes, halted when they began to do trade, until approximately the 4th century, once the Romans abandoned the fortress.

After the Roman invaders left, the locality was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted till the Norman invasion at which time a stone castle was constructed upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still remains of which we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most widely known for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been believed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), however as the castle was past repairing at the time she was born, that looks unlikely.

The town's right to run a Market on Saturdays harps back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was awarded its Market Charter (the fee from which raised funds for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter still remains even now and the market has been extremely vital for the town throughout the ages.
