Review of Kendal: A major spot for tourism standing on both sides of the River Kent on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in significant numbers of travellers both summer and winter. Even then vital enough to be recognized in the Domesday Book, carried out in 1086, The Kendal area has a history which extends back to undocumented days, an early Roman fort (AD90), and subsequent Norman castle provide proof of this.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal because many of its houses are built from the local gray limestone, the settlement was traditionally a part of Westmorland but is currently the 3rd most significant settlement in Cumbria. Kendal presently has got a local populace of approximately 28,000, though remember considerable amounts of travellers travel to the town especially through the summer months. Many different names were given to Kendal across the generations such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Even though Kendal is recognised as a tourist hotspot, the area has also long been famed for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later marketed as a high energy food, and that has long been favoured by explorers and climbers. Different industries whereby the people of the town have survived through the ages were wool, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has additionally been a vital market town.

The Heritage of Kendal: From the first until the fourth centuries AD, the invading Romans held sway over the Kendal district, dispossessing the local Brigantes people, they erected a fortress in approximately the first century AD, subsequently setting up trade with the displaced Brigantes for the purpose of keeping the fort supplied.

Once the Romans departed, the area was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued up to the Norman conquest when a stone castle was erected upon Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still pay a visit to the ruins of which we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most recognized as the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been professed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr, but as it was in serious need of repair by the time she was given birth to, that would seem to be not very likely.

Richard the First given a Market Charter to Kendal in 1189 as a way to collect revenue for the Crusades, the charter for this vital Saturday market holds good these days.
