Review of Kendal: Bringing in a lot of visitors throughout every season, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the fringe of Lakeland in Cumbria. The history of the Kendal area travels back to a undocumented era, a Roman fortress was put up nearby in AD90, a Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century and the town was noted in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.

The third biggest settlement in the county of Cumbria, although traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are mainly built of gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". With its resident populace of around 29,000, Kendal is only a modest town, though the populace swells considerably by visiting sightseers who adore this spot. Kendal as a settlement has been called various names throughout the eras, in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Cherchbi, various other names include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product for which Kendal has been known for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, frequently used by explorers and mountain climbers as a high energy food supplement, and said to have been discovered by accident, three companies still make the Mint Cake at present. Kendal has furthermore been an essential market town, & other industries by which its inhabitants have eked out a living include the manufacturing of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoes & wool.

Kendal Story: From the 1st to the 4th centuries AD, the Romans held power of the Kendal region, dispossessing the Brigantes people, they put up a fortress in around 90 AD, in the end developing trade with the previously displaced Brigantes so as to keep the fort supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) ruled after the Roman invaders left, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The appearance of the conquering Normans resulted in the construction, in the 12th c, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Probably most recognized for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been believed to be the birthplace of Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), but seeing that it was in a poor state of repair around the time she was given birth to, this seems to be not very likely.

The town was granted its Market Charter in 1189, and this market was always crucial for the region since those early days, the charter in fact still holds to this day and it gives the town the authority to maintain a Saturday market.
