Review of Kendal: Lying on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a significant region for tourists because of its closeness to the Lake District Park in addition to its own extended historical past. An early Roman fort & 12th century Norman fort give us proof of Kendal's long past history as it extends back into the mists of time, the reference of it in the 1086 Domesday Book displays its prominence even during those long departed times.

The 3rd largest settlement in the county of Cumbria, though in times past a part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are generally made of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Kendal nowadays has a local populace of around 28,586, although remember huge amounts of visitors head to the town most significantly through the summertime. Many different names were bestowed on Kendal across the eras for example Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Though Kendal is well known as a tourist hotspot, the area has in addition long been famed for Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, subsequently publicized as a high energy foodstuff, that's long been popular with climbers & explorers. Various trades by which the citizens of Kendal have earned a living over the generations included the wool industry, shoes, tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, it has also been a significant market town.

Kendal Story: The initial settlers of the Kendal area were a tribe the Brigantes, although the first structure of any size was put up by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the form of a fortress in the first century AD, the Romans departed in roughly the 4th C.

A whole lot later a new fort or castle was erected of the Motte and Bailey style, nonetheless that was succeeded by a castle of stone soon after the Norman conquest, dating from around the 12th century now known as Kendal Castle, remnants still to be seen on Castle Hill. Perhaps most widely known for being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been claimed to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), yet seeing that it was beyond repair at the moment she was given birth to, that appears extremely unlikely.

Kendal's legal right to hold a Market on Saturdays dates back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the associated fee from which helped to pay for the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter remains even now and the market has proved really important for the area over the centuries.
