Review of Kendal: A vital area for the tourism industry standing on both sides of the River Kent near to the fringe of the Lakes National Park, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal allures numerous visitors both winter and summer. An early Roman fortification & 12th century Norman fort give us proof of Kendal's long past history as it extends back to undocumented times, its reference in the Domesday Book of 1086 shows its significance even in those long past times.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal for the reason that a lot of of its properties are made from locally sourced greyish limestone, the town was in the past a part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd biggest settlement in Cumbria. Kendal presently has got a local populace of about 28,500, although remember huge amounts of sightseers go to the town in particular during the summer months. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are some of the names given to Kendal throughout the generations.

Aside from the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe most acclaimed for its manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been discovered by mistake & later on supplied as an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Trip. Various other trades whereby the locals of the town have eked out a living over the years include wool, shoe making, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has furthermore been a major market town.

Kendal History: The 1st settlers of the Kendal district were a tribe named the Brigantes, although the 1st building of any significance was built by the conquering Romans at nearby Watercrook in the shape of a fort in AD90, the Romans departed in about the 4th C.

Much later a new fort or castle was erected of the Motte and Bailey type, however this was supplanted by a stone castle following the Norman invasion, dating from approximately the 12th century now known as Kendal Castle, ruins still to be observed on Castle Hill. Maybe most commonly known as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often touted to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), yet seeing that it was in serious need of repair around the time she was given birth to, this would seem to be not very likely.

The town's legal right to host a Saturday market starts back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was granted its Market Charter (the charge from which helped fund the Crusades of Richard the First), the charter holds good even today and the market was really vital for the area through the years.
