Review of Kendal: Dissected by the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, Kendal is an important spot for the tourism industry mostly due to its nearness to the Lake District as well as its own fascinating ancient past. Already vital enough to be declared in the Domesday Book, finished in 1086, The settlement of Kendal has a history which travels back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortress (AD90), and subsequent Norman fort offer evidence of this.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal for the reason that the majority of its buildings are built from the local greyish limestone, the town was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is today the third most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria. Under no circumstances a big town having around 28,500 inhabitants, Kendal does of course bring in numerous extra folks in the form of visitors who go to this desirable location. Many titles have been bestowed on Kendal across the generations for instance Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

In addition to tourism, Kendal is most recognized for its manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, thought to have been discovered by chance and later supplied for an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure. From the fourteenth century the wool industry was essential for the town and different major trades whereby its citizens have earned a crust feature shoes, the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

Kendal Story: The earliest structure that had importance in the Kendal area was erected by the invading Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, by way of a fortress. Tussles involving the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, terminated after they begun to do trade, until around the 4th century, at which time the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control right after the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The arrival of the invading Normans resulted in the erection, in the 12th c, of a substantial stone castle (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Possibly best known for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often reported to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), though seeing that it was in serious need of repair at the moment she was given birth to, this seems not very likely.

Richard I issued a Market Charter to the town in 1189 in order to raise money for the Crusades, the charter for the crucial Saturday market still remains even today.
