Review of Kendal: Located on the River Kent in the county of Cumbria, the town of Kendal is a major spot for tourism because of its closeness to Lakeland added to its own long historic past. The history of the Kendal area travels back to largely unrecorded times, a Roman fortification was erected near by in AD90, an early Norman fort was re-built during the twelfth century & the settlement was described in the 1086 Domesday Book.

The nickname of "Auld Grey Town" was bestowed on Kendal given that the majority of of its houses are made from the local grey limestone, the settlement was in times past a part of Westmorland but is today the third biggest settlement in Cumbria. By no means a large town with approximately 28,500 inhabitants, Kendal does of course lure a lot of additional folks in the shape of visitors who travel to this sought after spot. Kendal as a settlement has been called several names through the years, in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Cherchbi, various other titles were Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

Whilst Kendal is recognised as a traveller hot spot, the town has additionally long been famous for its Kendal Mint Cake a confectionery, later on presented as an energy foodstuff, that has been favoured by explorers and mountain climbers. From the 14th century the wool business was essential for Kendal and additional major businesses by which its people have earned a living are shoe making, the production of pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff.

The Historical Past of Kendal: The first building of any significance in the Kendal district was erected by the invading Romans at Watercrook in roughly 90 AD, in the form of a fort. Rivalry involving the Romans and a local tribe known as the Brigantes, ended after they began to trade with each other, until about the 4th c, when the Romans left.

After the Romans left, the region was controlled by Celts (the Combrogi tribe) and then by the Anglo-Saxons, this went on up to the Norman conquest when a castle of stone was raised on Castle Hill in the 12th century, you can still pay a visit to the remainder of what we now know as Kendal Castle. Considered by some historians to be the birthplace of Catherine Parr (1512-1548), the 6th spouse of Henry the 8th , Kendal Castle was unquestionably the family home of the Parr family at about this moment in time, even though supposed to be past repairing by the time Catherine arrived in this world.

The town was granted its Market Charter in 1189, and the market always has been significant for the town since those distant days, that charter in actual fact still remains even today and it affords Kendal the right to maintain a market on Saturdays.
