Review of Kendal: A historical town on the fringe of the Lake District National Park in the county of Cumbria, Kendal rests on the River Kent and it's a significant spot for tourism, bringing in large numbers of visitors throughout the year. An early Roman fortress and 12th C Norman fortress offer proof of the town of Kendal's long past heritage as it extends back to unrecorded times, the reference of it in the 1086 Domesday Book illustrates its importance during those long past times.

Traditionally a part of Westmorland, Kendal is primarily built in the local gray limestone earning it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is in fact the 3rd largest town in Cumbria. On no account a huge town with roughly 28,000 citizens, Kendal does furthermore pull in many additional folks in the form of visitors who travel to this desirable location. Identified as Cherchbi in the Domesday Book, Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal are amongst the names given to Kendal over the ages.

A product that Kendal has been acclaimed for many years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by mountain climbers & explorers as an energy food supplement, and believed to have been made by chance, three companies still make the Mint Cake presently. Kendal has furthermore been an important market town, and various other industries whereby its citizens have survived included the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, shoe making and wool.

The Story of Kendal: From the first up to 4th centuries AD, the Romans held command of the Kendal district, taking over from the local Brigantes people, they raised a fortress in roughly 90 AD, subsequently doing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes to keep the fortress supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi tribe) held control once the Roman invaders departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were living there. The coming of the conquering Normans saw the construction, during the 12th century, of a castle of stone (now known as Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Maybe most commonly known as being the family home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has sometimes been alleged to be the birthplace of Henry the 8th's sixth spouse, Catherine Parr, although seeing that the castle was past repairing at the moment she was born, that seems to be unlikely.

The town's legal right to hold a Market on Saturdays goes back as long ago as 1189 when it was issued its Market Charter (the associated fee from which helped to fund Richard the First's Crusades), the charter holds good even today and the market was really vital for the town over the years.
