Review of Kendal: A major area for tourism sitting on the banks of the River Kent on the fringe of the Lake District National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to large numbers of tourists during the year. Already important enough to be outlined in the 1086 Domesday Book, The Kendal area has a story which goes back to undocumented times, an early Roman fort (AD90), & later built Norman fort pay testimony to this.

The third largest town in the county of Cumbria, though traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mainly constructed in grey limestone, earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". In no way a big town with around 28,500 citizens, Kendal does of course draw in a lot of extra people in the shape of travellers who flock to this well loved spot. Kendal as a settlement has had various names through the generations, in the Domesday Book it was referred to as Cherchbi, some other titles include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product for which Kendal has come to be renowned over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, widely used by mountain climbers and explorers as an energy food supplement, & thought to have been stumbled upon accidentally, 3 companies still make the Mint Cake currently. Kendal has furthermore been an important market town, and various other trades by which its folk have earned a living were the manufacture of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoes & the wool trade.

Kendal History: The first inhabitants of the Kendal area were a local tribe named the Brigantes, though the 1st structure of any significance was erected by the invading Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fortress in the first century AD, the Romans eventually departed in about the 4th century.

After the Romans departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later on by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation till the Norman invasion at which time a castle of stone was constructed on Castle Hill in the 12th C, there still exist the ruins of which we now call Kendal Castle. Imagined by many to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th wife of Henry VIII , Kendal Castle was most certainly the home of the Parr family at around this moment in time, although believed to be in a poor state of repair by the time Catherine arrived in this world.

Richard the First issued a Market Charter to the town in 1189 to help generate money for his Crusades, the charter for the crucial Market on Saturdays holds good these days.
