Review of Kendal: Bringing huge numbers of tourists both winter and summer, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, at the borders of the Lake District in Cumbria. The story of the Kendal area goes back into the mists of time, a Roman fort was put up close by in AD90, an early Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century & the settlement was outlined in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal for the reason that a large amount of of its buildings are made from the local grey limestone, the town was in the past part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd most significant town in Cumbria. With a local population of about 29,000, Kendal is only a moderate town, however this populace swells to some degree by visiting visitors who really enjoy this location. Kendal as a settlement has been called a few names over the generations, in the Domesday Book it was identified as Cherchbi, other titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

While Kendal is well known as a traveller hotspot, the town has additionally long been famous for its Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later marketed as an energy food supplement, and that has long been used often by mountain climbers and explorers. Alternative trades whereby the people of the town have eked out a living over the ages were the wool industry, shoe making, tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, it has furthermore been an essential market town.

Kendal Historical Past: The earliest construction of any size in the Kendal district was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in approximately the first century AD, in the shape of a fort. Arguments between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, finished after they begun to do trade, until roughly the 4th century, once the Romans left.

Once the Roman invaders left, the locality 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 century, you can still check out the remainder of which we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Probably best known as the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often claimed to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, though because it was past repairing at the time she was born, this appears improbable.

The town was granted a Market Charter in 1189, and this market has long been significant for the town ever since those formative times, that charter actually still holds even today and it allows Kendal the authority to hold a Saturday market.
