Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a major region for the tourism industry due to its close proximity to the Lakes as well as its own captivating ancient past. Already substantial enough to be noted in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, The town of Kendal has a story which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman fort pay testament to this.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal is largely built of locally sourced gray limestone gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is the third largest town in the county of Cumbria.

Once the Romans left, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case right up until Norman conquest after which a castle of stone was built on Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still look at remains of what we now know as Kendal Castle.
