Review of Kendal: A famous town on the fringe of Lakeland in Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and it's a major region for tourists, appealing to substantial numbers of tourists during the year. The history of the Kendal area stretches back to undocumented days, a Roman fortification was erected close by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built in the 12th century & the settlement was outlined in the Domesday Book of 1086.

In the past a part of Westmorland, Kendal is mainly built in the local gray limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is actually the third most significant settlement in Cumbria. With a resident population of roughly 28,586, Kendal is a moderate sized town, although this populace grows to some extent by visiting travellers who adore this place. Kendal as a settlement has had a variety of names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, some other names were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

While Kendal is accepted as a traveller hot spot, the town has also long been known for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on advertised as an energy foodstuff, which has been used often by explorers & mountain climbers. Kendal has additionally been a significant market town, and other industries whereby its inhabitants have eked out a living included the manufacture of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoes and the wool business.

The Story of Kendal: The 1st building that had size in the Kendal region was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in roughly 90 AD, in the form of a fortress. Conflicts between the Romans and a tribe named the Brigantes, ended when they began to trade with each other, until about the 4th century, when the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled after the Roman invaders left, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The appearance of the conquering Normans resulted in the construction, during the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most widely known for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has frequently been claimed to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, yet seeing that it was in serious need of repair about the time she was given birth to, that would seem extremely unlikely.

The town's legal right to hold a Saturday market harps back as long ago as 1189 when it was given its Market Charter (the charge for this raised funds for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter is still in place even today and the market has proved really significant for the town across the generations.
