Review of Kendal: A historic town upon the edge of Lakeland in Cumbria, Kendal rests on the River Kent and it is an important area for the tourism industry, attracting a lot of visitors throughout every season. An early Roman fortress & 12th century Norman castle present proof of the Kendal area's early heritage as it stretches back to unrecorded eras, the mention of it in the 1086 Domesday Book demonstrates its importance even during those long departed eras.

The third largest settlement in Cumbria, although in the past a part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are principally built in gray limestone, earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". With its resident populace of approximately 28,586, Kendal is a modest town, while this population is swelled to some degree by visiting travellers who appreciate this place. Labelled as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal through the generations.

Although Kendal is well recognized as a tourism hot spot, the area has in addition long been famed for Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, subsequently sold as an energy food, that has been used often by climbers & explorers. Kendal has additionally been an important market town, and other types of industries by which its citizens have survived include the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoe making & the wool trade.

Kendal Story: The first structure that had magnitude in the Kendal area was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, by way of a fortification. Conflicts between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, halted when they started to trade, until approximately the fourth century, once the Romans departed.

Once the Roman invaders departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued up to the Norman invasion when a substantial stone castle was built upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, you can still see what remains of which we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is possibly best known as the home of the Parr family, in fact some feel that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's sixth wife was given birth to in the castle, though this is not likely considering the castle was actually in serious need of repair about the time she was born.

The town's right to run a Market on Saturdays dates back as far as 1189 at which time it was accorded its Market Charter (the charge for this helped to fund the Crusades of Richard I), the charter remains even now and the market has been extremely crucial for the area across the years.
