Review of Kendal: On both sides of the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is a vital area for tourism because of its closeness to the Lake District National Park along with its own extended historical past. An early Roman fortification & twelfth century Norman castle show proof of the town of Kendal's early background as it goes back into the mists of time, its reference in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its importance even in those long past days.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal given that the majority of of its properties are constructed of the local grey limestone, the settlement was in times past a part of Westmorland but is today the third biggest town in the county of Cumbria. Definitely not a huge town with approximately 28,500 occupants, Kendal does of course pull in countless additional people in the form of sightseers who flock to this prominent area. Called Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names bestowed on Kendal throughout the centuries.

Even though Kendal is well regarded as a tourism hot spot, the town has additionally long been famed for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, subsequently promoted as an energy foodstuff, that's been used often by explorers & climbers. Kendal has additionally been an important market town, and additional industries by which its folk have earned a crust are the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoes & wool.

Kendal Story: The first structure that had significance in the Kendal area was erected by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in approximately AD90, in the shape of a fortress. Rivalry between the Romans and a tribe named the Brigantes, ended after they started to trade, until approximately the fourth century, once the Romans abandoned the area.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control once the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The appearance of the conquering Normans resulted in the construction, in the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most widely known as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has frequently been claimed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), though since the castle was past repairing during the time she was born, this looks not likely.

The town was accorded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been essential for the area since those ancient days, this charter in fact still holds even today and it allows Kendal the legal right to hold a Saturday market.
