Information for Kendal Cumbria: A major spot for tourism established alongside the River Kent near the fringes of the Lakes National Park, the old Cumbrian town of Kendal allures significant numbers of tourists throughout the year. The story of the settlement of Kendal travels back to largely undocumented times, a Roman fort was constructed near by in AD90, an early Norman castle was re-built in the twelfth century & the town was named in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Traditionally a part of Westmorland, Kendal is primarily constructed in the local gray limestone gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the third largest built-up area in the county of Cumbria. On no account a large town with roughly 28,586 citizens, Kendal does additionally attract numerous extra folks in the shape of sightseers who go to this prominent area. Kendal as a settlement has been called various names through the centuries, in the Domesday Book it was listed as Cherchbi, alternative titles were Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Other than the tourism industry, Kendal is most recognized for its production of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, thought to have been discovered by chance and subsequently provided for an high energy food to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Journey. Since the 14th century wool was important for Kendal & a few other significant businesses whereby its locals have earned a living included shoe making, the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco.

Kendal History: The 1st structure of any significance in the Kendal region was raised by the invading Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, in the shape of a fortress. Tussles involving the Romans and a local tribe referred to as the Brigantes, stopped after they began to trade, until about the 4th century, once the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) ruled as soon as the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The presence of the invading Normans brought about the erection, during the 12th century, of a stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Perhaps most well known as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has often been reported to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however seeing that it was in serious need of repair at the time she arrived in this world, that appears to be improbable.

The town's right to run a Market on Saturdays goes back as long ago as 1189 when it was given its Market Charter (the associated fee for this helped to fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter still holds good even now and the market has proved really vital for the town throughout the centuries.
