Review of Kendal: A significant spot for the tourism industry lying on either side of the River Kent near the boundaries of the Lake District, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal appeals to huge numbers of tourists throughout the year. The history of the settlement of Kendal travels back into the mists of time, a Roman fortification was erected in close proximity in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century and the town was mentioned in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal due to the fact that a large percentage of of the buildings are built from locally sourced greyish limestone, the town was historically part of Westmorland but is currently the third most significant settlement in Cumbria. Not at all a big town with about 29,000 occupants, Kendal does of course draw in lots of extra people in the form of tourists who go to this well-liked region. Several titles were given to Kendal throughout the years for instance Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is perhaps most commonly known for the production of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been discovered inadvertently & later on provided as an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition. From around the fourteenth century the wool industry was important for Kendal and various other major industries by which its citizens have made a living include shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Historical Past: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the Romans held sway over the Kendal district, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they raised a fortress in about the first century AD, subsequently trading with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fort in supplies.

A whole lot later on a new fort or castle was built of the Motte and Bailey pattern, however it was succeeded by a strong stone castle soon after the Norman invasion, in approximately the 12th century which we now know as Kendal Castle, ruins still surviving on Castle Hill. Probably most widely known as the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often claimed to be the birthplace of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), although because the castle was beyond repair during the time she was given birth to, that seems unlikely.

Richard I given a Market Charter to the town in 1189 to help generate funds for his Crusades, the charter for this essential Market on Saturdays holds good even today.
