Review of Kendal: A vital spot for tourists sitting beside the River Kent on the fringes of the Lake District, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal draws huge numbers of tourists each and every year. An early Roman fortification and 12th century Norman fort pay testament to the Kendal area's long past history as it extends back to a undocumented era, its reference in the 1086 Domesday Book indicates its value during those long gone times.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal because the majority of its buildings are built from locally sourced grey limestone, the town was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is now the third biggest settlement in Cumbria. Kendal today has got a resident population of roughly 28,000, although remember considerable numbers of travellers flock to the area in particular in the summer months. Recorded as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal through the generations.

A product for which Kendal has been well known for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountaineers and explorers as an energy food, & suspected to have been discovered inadvertently, three firms still manufacture the Mint Cake these days. From around the fourteenth century the wool trade was crucial for Kendal and various other major trades whereby its citizens have survived were shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Heritage: The earliest building of any size in the Kendal region was erected by the Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, in the form of a fortress. Tussles involving the Romans and a tribe named the Brigantes, stopped when they started to do trade, until about the fourth century, at which time the Romans abandoned the fortress.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control after the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were settling the area. The presence of the invading Normans triggered the raising, during the 12th century, of a castle of stone (that we now know as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is probably most famous as the home of the Parr family, indeed some reckon that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse was born there, although it's unlikely as the castle was thought to have been in a poor state of repair at the time she arrived in this world.

Richard I issued a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 in order to generate funds for the Crusades, the charter for this vital Saturday market holds good even today.
