Review of Kendal: A historic town found on the fringe of the Lake District National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and is an important spot for tourism, bringing in many travellers all year long. An early Roman fortification and 12th century Norman fortress present proof of the town of Kendal's long past history as it extends back to unrecorded times, its annotation in the 1086 Domesday Book illustrates its significance even during those long gone times.

The third most significant built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although in the past part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are typically built of grey limestone, earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal at present has got a local population of approximately 28,586, though in fact huge numbers of tourists travel to the area especially in the summer season. Termed Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal across the generations.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famous for decades is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountain climbers & explorers as an energy foodstuff, and supposed to have been stumbled upon by chance, 3 companies still make the Mint Cake presently. Kendal has in addition been an important market town, & alternative businesses by which its citizens have survived include the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool trade.

Kendal Story: From the first until the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held command of the Kendal area, dispossessing the Brigantes people, they constructed a fort in about 90 AD, subsequently organising trade with the displaced Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

A whole lot later a new fort or castle was constructed in Motte and Bailey type, though it was supplanted by a castle of stone following the Norman invasion, in roughly the 12th century and now known as Kendal Castle, remains still can be visited on Castle Hill. Suspected by some experts to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr, the 6th spouse of Henry the Eighth , Kendal Castle was certainly the residence of the Parr family at around this period, though supposed to be past repairing around the time Catherine arrived in this world.

Richard I issued a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 as a way to generate funds for his Crusades, the charter for the crucial Saturday market still holds good even today.
