Information for Kendal Cumbria: Popular with huge numbers of tourists all year long, the well known town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, at the boundaries of the Lakes in The county of Cumbria. An early Roman fortification and 12th century Norman fortress provide evidence of the Kendal area's early history as it goes back to a undocumented era, the reference of it in the 1086 Domesday Book demonstrates its value even in those long departed eras.

In times past part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly built in the local grey limestone giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is the 3rd largest town in Cumbria. Kendal these days has a resident populace of roughly 29,000, though remember appreciable quantities of travellers go to the area particularly during the summer season. Kendal as a settlement has had quite a few names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was named Cherchbi, alternative titles include Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Besides tourism, Kendal is perhaps most recognized for its manufacture of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, suspected to have been made inadvertently & later on supplied for an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Journey. From around the fourteenth century wool was vital for the town and various major businesses whereby its locals have earned a crust were shoes, the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

Kendal Historical Past: The earliest structure that had size in the Kendal region was erected by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, in the shape of a fortification. Scrapping involving the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, concluded when they started to trade with each other, until roughly the 4th c, at which time the Romans abandoned the fortress.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control as soon as the Romans departed, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were the chief settlers. The arrival of the conquering Normans brought about the erection, during the twelfth century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most widely known as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often reported to be the place of the birth of Henry VIII's 6th wife, Catherine Parr, however since the castle was past repairing at the moment she arrived in this world, this appears to be improbable.

The town's legal right to maintain a Market on Saturdays harps back as long ago as 1189 at which time it was accorded its Market Charter (the fee from this raised funds for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter remains these days and the market was really crucial for the area over the generations.
