Review of Kendal: Enticing a lot of tourists all year long, the historic town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, at the fringe of the Lakes National Park in Cumbria. The history of the Kendal area stretches back into the mists of time, a Roman fort was constructed in close proximity in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built in the 12th century and the settlement was acknowledged in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal given that almost all of the houses are constructed of the local gray limestone, the town was in times past part of Westmorland but is today the 3rd largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria. With a local populace of approximately 29,000, Kendal is just a moderate sized town, however the population expands somewhat by visiting travellers who adore this location. Kendal as a settlement has been called quite a few names over the years, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, alternative titles include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has come to be widely recognized for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountain climbers and explorers as a high energy food supplement, and reputed to have been discovered by accident, 3 firms still produce the Mint Cake at present. From the fourteenth century the production of wool was significant for Kendal & additional major businesses whereby its citizens have earned a living feature shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first structure that had size in the Kendal region was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, in the shape of a fortress. Scrapping between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, halted when they started to trade with each other, until approximately the 4th c, when the Romans departed.

After the Roman invaders left, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on right up until Norman invasion after which a castle of stone was constructed on Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still pay a visit to the remnants of what we now call Kendal Castle. Kendal Castle is probably best known as the home of the Parr family, moreover some suppose that Catherine Parr, Henry the Eighth's sixth spouse arrived in this world in the castle, though that's unlikely as the castle was past repairing around the time she was given birth to.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 to help raise money for the Crusades, the charter for the crucial Saturday market holds good even today.
