Review of Kendal: Bringing substantial numbers of visitors throughout every season, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, on the fringe of the Lake District Park in Cumbria. An early Roman fortress & twelfth century Norman fort pay testimony to the town of Kendal's long past story as it travels back to a undocumented era, the mention of it in the Domesday Book, Written in 1086 shows its prominence even in those long departed years.

The third most significant town in Cumbria, although in times past part of Westmorland, the buildings of Kendal are generally built of grey limestone, giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal today has got a resident population of approximately 28,000, though in fact considerable quantities of sightseers flock to the area most significantly in the summer months. Labelled as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are among the names given to Kendal across the eras.

Apart from the tourism industry, Kendal is possibly most widely known for the manufacturing of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, thought to have been discovered by chance & subsequently supplied for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Adventure. Kendal has moreover been a noteworthy market town, & various other businesses by which its people have earned a crust included the production of tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, shoe making and the wool industry.

Kendal History: The 1st construction of any significance in the Kendal area was raised by the Romans at Watercrook in around the first century AD, in the form of a fortress. Tussles involving the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, terminated when they begun to trade, until roughly the 4th century, when the Romans abandoned the area.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held sway once the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The presence of the conquering Normans led to the raising, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Possibly best known for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been stated to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth wife, Catherine Parr, though since the castle was past repairing at the moment she was given birth to, that seems to be not likely.

Kendal's right to hold a Market on Saturdays harps back as long ago as 1189 when it was accorded its Market Charter (the associated fee from which helped to fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter is still in place to this day and the market was very crucial for the town across the centuries.
