Review of Kendal: An important region for the tourism industry sitting alongside the River Kent on the fringes of the Lakes, the historical Cumbrian town of Kendal lures in huge numbers of tourists year round. An early Roman fortress & twelfth century Norman castle pay testament to Kendal's long past heritage as it extends back to largely undocumented times, its mention in the Domesday Book of 1086 displays its prominence even during those long past eras.

The 3rd most significant built-up area in Cumbria, though traditionally a part of Westmorland, Kendal's houses are mostly built of gray limestone, gaining it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town". Kendal nowadays has got a resident populace of about 29,000, although in fact considerable numbers of travellers travel to the area especially during the summer time. Kendal as a settlement has been called several names through the years, in the Domesday Book it was called Cherchbi, various other titles include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product that Kendal has come to be acclaimed for years is Kendal Mint Cake, favoured by explorers & mountain climbers as a high energy food supplement, & reputed to have been stumbled upon by chance, three companies still manufacture the Mint Cake currently. Other types of industries by which the people of the town have eked out a living across the centuries feature the wool trade, shoe making, tobacco snuff & pipe tobacco, it has also been an essential market town.

The Story of Kendal: From the first to the fourth centuries AD, the Romans held command of the Kendal district, replacing the Brigantes tribe, they erected a fortification in roughly the first century AD, at some point doing trade with the dispossessed Brigantes so as to keep the fortress in supplies.

After the Romans departed, the locality was ruled over by Celts (the Combrogi people) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this was the case up until the Norman conquest when a stone castle was built upon Castle Hill in the twelfth century, you can still view the remainder of what we now call Kendal Castle. Probably most famed for being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has repeatedly been professed to be the place of the birth of Henry the 8th's sixth wife, Catherine Parr (1512-1548), however because the castle was in serious need of repair by the time she was born, this appears unlikely.

Richard I given a Market Charter to the town in 1189 to help collect revenue for his Crusades, the charter for the important Market on Saturdays is still in place even now.
