Review of Kendal: Tempting numerous visitors all year round, the historical town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the fringe of the Lakes National Park in Cumbria. The story of Kendal stretches back to a undocumented era, a Roman fortification was erected close by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built during the 12th century and the town was recognized in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086.

The 3rd largest town in the county of Cumbria, although historically part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are mainly constructed in gray limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". With a local population of roughly 28,586, Kendal is a modest sized town, whilst the population expands to some extent by visiting tourists who adore this area. A variety of names were given to Kendal across the ages including Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides tourism, Kendal is perhaps most commonly known for its manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, supposed to have been made inadvertently and later on provided as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Trip. Alternative trades whereby the locals of Kendal have made a living over the eras were the production of wool, shoes, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has also been an important market town.

Kendal History: From the 1st up to 4th centuries AD, the Romans held command of the Kendal region, dispossessing the local Brigantes tribe, they raised a fortress in roughly 90 AD, at some point setting up trade with the displaced Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fort in supplies.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) ruled once the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The coming of the invading Normans resulted in the building, in the 12th century, of a stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Imagined by some people to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was definitely the residence of the Parr family at about this point, even though believed to be past repairing by the time Catherine was born.

The town's right to maintain a Market on Saturdays goes back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was granted its Market Charter (the fee from this helped to fund the Crusades of Richard I), the charter is still in place even today and the market has proved extremely significant for the town over the ages.
