Review of Kendal: Bringing numerous tourists throughout every season, the historical town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, at the fringe of the Lake District Park in The county of Cumbria. Even then vital enough to be documented in the Domesday Book of 1086, The settlement of Kendal has a story which extends back into the mists of time, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later Norman castle pay testament to this.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal for the reason that most of the properties are made from the local gray limestone, the settlement was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is today the third most significant settlement in the county of Cumbria. Definitely not a big town having around 29,000 inhabitants, Kendal does of course draw in countless additional folks in the form of travellers who head to this desirable spot. Numerous titles were bestowed on Kendal over the centuries like Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Other than tourism, Kendal is probably best known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been stumbled upon accidentally and later on provided as an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Various other trades whereby the people of Kendal have survived through the years were the wool industry, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been an important market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: The earliest building that had importance in the Kendal area was erected by the Romans at Watercrook in around AD90, in the form of a fortress. Tussles between the Romans and a local tribe named the Brigantes, terminated once they started to do trade, until around the 4th century, once the Romans departed.

After the Roman invaders departed, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this lasted up until the Norman conquest when a castle of stone was erected upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there still exist remains of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Maybe most recognized as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been touted to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), yet because the castle was beyond repair at the moment she was born, this looks not likely.

Kendal was awarded a Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been essential for the town ever since those distant times, the charter in actual fact is still in place to this day and it allows the town the legal right to host a Saturday market.
