Review of Kendal: Dissected by the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a major area for tourism mostly because of its closeness to the Lake District Park in addition to its own extended historic past. An early Roman fortress and twelfth century Norman castle pay testimony to the Kendal area's far off background as it travels back to a undocumented era, its annotation in the Domesday Book of 1086 reveals its value even during those long past times.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal due to the fact that the majority of its houses are constructed of locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was in the past part of Westmorland but is today the 3rd biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria. With a resident populace of approximately 29,000, Kendal is only a modest town, however this populace expands to some extent by visiting tourists who really enjoy this place. Identified as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland are amongst the names bestowed on Kendal across the eras.

Whilst Kendal is widely recognized as a tourist destination, the town has also long been well known for Kendal Mint Cake a sweet, later on marketed as a high energy food supplement, that has been favoured by explorers & mountain climbers. Additional industries whereby the people of the town have survived throughout the eras included the production of wool, shoe making, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has in addition been a noteworthy market town.

Kendal Historical Past: The earliest structure that had significance in the Kendal region was erected by the Romans at Watercrook in around the first century AD, in the form of a fort. Tussles involving the Romans and a local tribe named the Brigantes, concluded after they begun to trade with each other, until around the 4th c, when the Romans departed.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control once the Roman invaders departed, and by the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were in control. The arrival of the conquering Normans resulted in the erection, during the 12th c, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) on Castle Hill. Possibly most commonly known as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle is often believed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), although as it was in serious need of repair about the time she arrived in this world, that appears to be not very likely.

The town was issued its Market Charter in 1189, and the market has long been vital for the area ever since those formative days, that charter in fact still holds these days and it gives Kendal the right to have a Saturday market.
