Review of Kendal: An important spot for tourists lying beside the River Kent at the edge of the Lake District Park, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal draws large numbers of travellers both winter and summer. The history of Kendal extends back into the mists of time, a Roman fort was constructed in close proximity in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built in the twelfth century and the town was noted in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, the town of Kendal is mostly built in locally sourced grey limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd largest built-up area in Cumbria. Kendal currently has a resident populace of roughly 29,000, although in fact substantial amounts of travellers travel to the area especially through the summertime. Recorded as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal across the ages.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe best known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been stumbled upon by mistake & later supplied for an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Alternative trades by which the people of the town have eked out a living across the generations included wool, shoes, tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, it has additionally been an essential market town.

The History of Kendal: From the first up to fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held command of the Kendal region, taking over from the local Brigantes tribe, they put up a fortress in about 90 AD, at some point setting up trade with the previously displaced Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fort supplied.

A whole lot later a new castle or fort was erected in the Motte and Bailey pattern, however this was succeeded by a strong stone castle soon after the Norman conquest, dating from approximately the twelfth century and now known as Kendal Castle, remains still can be viewed on Castle Hill. Probably best known as being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been reported to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however as the castle was in a poor state of repair at the moment she was given birth to, this would seem to be extremely unlikely.

The town was given a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been vital for the region ever since those long gone times, that charter actually still remains even now and it gives Kendal the right to hold a Saturday market.
