Review of Kendal: Located on the River Kent in Cumbria, the town of Kendal is an important region for tourists especially because of its nearness to the Lakes added to its own lengthy historical past. Even then significant enough to be documented in the 1086 Domesday Book, Kendal has a story which travels back to largely undocumented days, an early Roman fort (AD90), and later Norman fortress pay testament to this.

The nickname "Auld Grey Town" was given to Kendal given that many of its properties are made from locally sourced greyish limestone, the town was historically part of Westmorland but is now the 3rd most significant town in the county of Cumbria. With its resident populace of around 29,000, Kendal is only a modest sized town, although this population is swelled somewhat by visiting travellers who like this area. Many titles have been bestowed on Kendal across the ages for example Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product for which Kendal has come to be famed for a long time is Kendal Mint Cake, a favourite of mountain climbers & explorers as a high energy food, and said to have been discovered accidentally, three companies still manufacture the Mint Cake nowadays. Kendal has moreover been a noteworthy market town, & a few other businesses by which its people have made a living included the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco, shoes & the production of wool.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first building that had importance in the Kendal area was erected by the invading Romans at Watercrook in roughly the first century AD, in the form of a fortress. Battles between the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, ended when they began to trade, until roughly the 4th century, at which time the Romans abandoned the area.

Considerably later a new fort or castle was constructed in the Motte and Bailey style, nonetheless that was supplanted by a castle of stone following the Norman conquest, in roughly the 12th c and now known as Kendal Castle, remnants still to be viewed on Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is maybe most recognized as the family home of the Parr family, also many people suspect that Catherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth wife was given birth to in the castle, though that's extremely unlikely since the castle was reckoned to have been beyond repair at the moment she was born.

The town was awarded its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has been vital for the region since those long gone years, this charter in fact is still in place these days and it affords Kendal the right to maintain a Saturday market.
