Review of Kendal: Tempting large numbers of visitors all year long, the historical town of Kendal, rests on the River Kent, near the fringe of Lakeland in Cumbria. The story of the Kendal area stretches back to largely unrecorded days, a Roman fort was constructed close by in AD90, a Norman castle was re-built during the 12th century and the settlement was declared in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Traditionally part of Westmorland, Kendal is primarily built of the local gray limestone giving it the nickname of "Auld Grey Town", it is the third biggest built-up area in Cumbria. With its resident populace of about 29,000, Kendal is only a modest sized town, even though the populace swells to some extent by visiting sightseers who take pleasure in this place. Kendal as a settlement has been called several names throughout the years, in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Cherchbi, alternative titles include Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Aside from tourism, Kendal is most commonly known for the production of the sweet, Kendal Mint Cake, reputed to have been discovered inadvertently and subsequently provided for an energy foodstuff to Ernest Shackleton on his Trans-Antarctic Expedition. From the fourteenth century the wool business was essential for the town and a few other major industries whereby its citizens have earned a crust were shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco & tobacco snuff.

Kendal Story: The earliest building that had magnitude in the Kendal region was built by the Romans at Watercrook in approximately 90 AD, in the form of a fortress. Quarrels involving the Romans and a local tribe referred to as the Brigantes, halted after they begun to trade with each other, until roughly the 4th c, at which time the Romans abandoned the fort.

Significantly later a new castle or fort was constructed in the Motte and Bailey pattern, though this was supplanted by a substantial stone castle following the Norman conquest, in about the 12th c now known as Kendal Castle, remains still surviving on Castle Hill. Perhaps most commonly known as being the residence of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has commonly been reported to be the place of the birth of Henry the Eighth's 6th spouse, Catherine Parr (1512-48), though seeing that the castle was in a poor state of repair by the time she was given birth to, this appears to be extremely unlikely.

Kendal was accorded its Market Charter in 1189, and the market has long been essential for the region ever since those long past years, this charter actually is still in place today and it allows the town the ability to maintain a market on Saturdays.
