Review of Kendal: Located on the River Kent in Cumbria, Kendal is a significant region for tourists because of its proximity to Lakeland in addition to its own intriguing historical past. Already substantial enough to be referred to in the Domesday Book, concluded in 1086, The Kendal area has a history which stretches back to a undocumented era, an early Roman fortress (AD90), and later built Norman fortress present evidence of this.

The 3rd biggest settlement in Cumbria, although in the past part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mainly constructed in gray limestone, earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal today has a local populace of about 29,000, though in fact appreciable numbers of tourists flock to the town most significantly in the summertime. Kendal as a settlement has been called a few names throughout the years, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, additional names were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has come to be renowned for decades is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by explorers and mountain climbers as an energy food supplement, and said to have been stumbled upon inadvertently, three firms still make the Mint Cake presently. Kendal has additionally been an important market town, and alternative trades by which its folk have survived are the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoes & the wool business.

Kendal Heritage: The earliest structure of any importance in the Kendal region was raised by the invading Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, in the form of a fort. Tussles involving the Romans and a local tribe called the Brigantes, finished after they begun to trade with each other, until around the 4th c, when the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were the chief settlers. The coming of the conquering Normans triggered the raising, in the 12th century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most famous for being the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been reported to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), though because it was in serious need of repair at the moment she arrived in this world, this appears to be extremely unlikely.

Kendal was awarded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has always been crucial for the region ever since those far off days, that charter indeed is still in place these days and it gives Kendal the authority to hold a market on Saturdays.
