Review of Kendal: A historical town on the fringes of Lakeland in Cumbria, Kendal stands on the banks of the River Kent and is a vital spot for tourism, appealing to many tourists both summer and winter. The story of Kendal travels back into the mists of time, a Roman fort was put up close by in AD90, an early Norman castle was re-built in the twelfth century and the settlement was declared in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The third most significant settlement in the county of Cumbria, though in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are typically built of grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". With a resident populace of roughly 28,500, Kendal is a modest sized town, whilst the populace is swelled considerably by visiting tourists who like this area. Referred to as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are among the names given to Kendal over the generations.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is maybe best known for its manufacturing of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, said to have been made by mistake and later provided as an energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic Journey.

The Story of Kendal: The first structure of any significance in the Kendal area was erected by the Romans at Watercrook in approximately AD90, in the shape of a fortification. Tussles between the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, concluded once they began to trade with each other, until about the 4th c, at which time the Romans abandoned the fortress.

Once the Roman invaders left, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later still by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the situation till the Norman conquest at which time a castle of stone was raised on Castle Hill in the 12th century, there are still the remnants of which we now call Kendal Castle. Perhaps most recognized as the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often believed to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr, but since the castle was in serious need of repair at the time she arrived in this world, that looks improbable.

Kendal was awarded a Market Charter in 1189, and the market has long been essential for the town since those distant days, this charter in truth is still in place even today and it affords Kendal the ability to hold a Saturday market.
