Review of Kendal: An important area for tourism sitting next to the River Kent on the boundaries of the Lakes National Park, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal draws huge numbers travellers each and every year. Already substantial enough to be mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book, The Kendal area has a history which travels back into the mists of time, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later Norman castle give evidence of this.

The 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, though historically part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are most commonly built in gray limestone, giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". Not a large town having around 29,000 occupants, Kendal does of course bring in lots of extra people in the shape of visitors who travel to this prominent spot. Kendal as a settlement has had several names through the generations, in the Domesday Book it was referred to as Cherchbi, additional titles include Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Other than tourism, Kendal is maybe most commonly known for its manufacture of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, believed to have been made by chance & eventually provided for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure. Various other industries by which the people of the town have earned a living over the ages are the wool industry, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has furthermore been an important market town.

Kendal Heritage: From the first up to 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held sway over the Kendal area, dispossessing the local Brigantes people, they raised a fortress in roughly the first century AD, in due course doing trade with the displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortification supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control once the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The coming of the invading Normans triggered the building, in the 12th century, of a castle of stone (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps best known for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often claimed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, yet seeing that the castle was beyond repair at the time she was born, that would seem not likely.

The town's legal right to host a Market on Saturdays starts back as far as 1189 at which time it was given its Market Charter (the charge from this helped to pay for the Crusades of Richard I), the charter holds good even today and the market has been very important for the town throughout the ages.
