Review of Kendal: Located on the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a vital region for tourists because of its closeness to the Lakes National Park in addition to its own extended ancient past. The story of the Kendal area stretches back to unrecorded days, a Roman fortification was constructed in close proximity in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century & the settlement was referred to in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal simply because many of the buildings are built from the local greyish limestone, the town was in the past part of Westmorland but is currently the third biggest settlement in Cumbria.

Kendal Story: From the first until the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held command of the Kendal district, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they built a fortress in about AD90, in the end setting up trade with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortification in supplies.

Once the Romans left, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman conquest at which time a substantial stone castle was constructed upon Castle Hill in the 12th C, there are still the remainder of what we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Possibly most famed as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has repeatedly been reported to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), although seeing that it was in serious need of repair about the time she was born, this would seem not likely.
