Review of Kendal: Popular with a great number of travellers all year long, the historic town of Kendal, sits on the River Kent, on the borders of the Lake District in The county of Cumbria. Already vital enough to be described in the Domesday Book of 1086, The Kendal area has a story which travels back to unrecorded days, an early Roman fortification (AD90), and later built Norman fortress pay testimony to this.

In times past a part of Westmorland, Kendal is primarily constructed in locally sourced grey limestone giving it the nickname "Auld Grey Town", it is actually the 3rd largest settlement in the county of Cumbria. Kendal nowadays has got a resident population of approximately 28,000, though of course appreciable quantities of travellers travel to the town especially through the summertime. Kendal as a settlement has been called quite a few names throughout the generations, in the Domesday Book it was called Cherchbi, various other names were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Although Kendal is well regarded as a tourist destination, the area has in addition long been well known for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on marketed as an energy food supplement, and that has long been used often by explorers & mountaineers. Various businesses by which the inhabitants of Kendal have survived throughout the eras included the wool business, shoes, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has additionally been a vital market town.

The Historical Past of Kendal: From the 1st until the 4th centuries AD, the conquering Romans held control of the Kendal area, replacing the Brigantes tribe, they put up a fort in around AD90, eventually setting up trade with the previously displaced Brigantes in order to keep the fortress supplied.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control once the Roman invaders left, and by the time of the Norman conquest the Anglo-Saxons were in charge. The appearance of the invading Normans saw the erection, in the 12th c, of a strong stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is maybe most famed as the family home of the Parr family, indeed many people feel that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the 8th's sixth spouse was given birth to in the castle, although that is extremely unlikely because the castle was thought to have been in a poor state of repair during the time she was given birth to.

Kendal was granted a Market Charter in 1189, and this market always has been vital for the area ever since those ancient years, this charter indeed is still in place to this day and it allows Kendal the ability to maintain a market on Saturdays.
