Review of Kendal: An old town on the fringe of the Lake District in the county of Cumbria, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and is a vital region for tourism, luring many tourists all through the year. The history of the settlement of Kendal goes back into the mists of time, a Roman fort was erected near by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built during the 12th century and the settlement was outlined in the Domesday Book of 1086.

In times past a part of Westmorland, Kendal is mostly constructed in locally sourced gray limestone earning it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it's the 3rd most significant settlement in the county of Cumbria. Not at all a huge town having approximately 28,586 occupants, Kendal does in addition draw in many additional folks in the shape of sightseers who head to this prominent region. A variety of names have been bestowed on Kendal through the eras including Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Kendal, Kirkby in Kendal and Kirkbie Strickland.

Other than tourism, Kendal is maybe most commonly known for the production of the confectionery, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been stumbled upon unintentionally & later supplied for an high energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic Trip. Kendal has moreover been a major market town, and different trades by which its folk have survived included the manufacture of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff, shoes & the wool trade.

Kendal Historical Past: The 1st structure of any magnitude in the Kendal district was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in around 90 AD, by way of a fort. Conflicts between the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, halted when they begun to do trade, until approximately the 4th century, when the Romans left.

The Celts (the Combrogi people) held control as soon as the Romans departed, and at the time of the Norman invasion the Anglo-Saxons were inhabiting the area. The coming of the conquering Normans brought about the building, in the 12th century, of a substantial stone castle (now called Kendal Castle) upon Castle Hill. Kendal Castle is possibly best known as the family home of the Parr family, indeed many people believe that Catherine Parr (1512-48), Henry the 8th's sixth spouse arrived in this world in the castle, however this is not very likely since the castle was actually in serious need of repair at the moment she was given birth to.

The town was issued its Market Charter in 1189, and this market has always been vital for the town since those early days, that charter in actual fact still remains even today and it gives the town the right to maintain a Saturday market.
