Review of Kendal: An important area for tourism located alongside the River Kent on the boundaries of the Lakes, the historic Cumbrian town of Kendal draws in huge numbers tourists during the year. Even then substantial enough to be declared in the Domesday Book, carried out in 1086, The Kendal area has a story which extends back to largely undocumented times, an early Roman fortification (AD90), & later Norman fort offer proof of this.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was assigned to Kendal due to the fact that most of the properties are made from locally sourced greyish limestone, the settlement was traditionally part of Westmorland but is these days the third largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. Under no circumstances a huge town having around 28,500 inhabitants, Kendal does of course pull in numerous extra people in the form of visitors who flock to this well known area. Many names have been bestowed on Kendal throughout the ages such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkby in Kendal, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

A product that Kendal has come to be famous for decades is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of mountain climbers and explorers as a high energy food, and said to have been discovered unintentionally, three firms still make the Mint Cake at present. Kendal has additionally been a major market town, and different trades by which its people have survived included the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, shoe making & wool.

The Story of Kendal: The 1st construction of any significance in the Kendal district was raised by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in about 90 AD, in the form of a fortress. Brawls between the Romans and a local tribe referred to as the Brigantes, concluded after they began to trade with each other, until about the 4th century, at which time the Romans departed.

After the Roman invaders departed, the area was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and later by the Anglo-Saxons, this continued right up until Norman conquest at which time a castle of stone was raised on Castle Hill in the twelfth century, there are still remains of what we now refer to as Kendal Castle. Probably most commonly acknowledged for being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been alleged to be the birthplace of Henry the Eighth's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however as the castle was in serious need of repair by the time she was given birth to, that seems to be unlikely.

The town's right to have a Market on Saturdays goes back as far as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the charge from this helped to pay for Richard the First's Crusades), the charter holds good even today and the market was extremely significant for the town through the generations.
