Review of Kendal: Bringing numerous travellers all year round, the historic town of Kendal, stands on the River Kent, near the edge of the Lake District Park in Cumbria. Even then substantial enough to be documented in the 1086 Domesday Book, The settlement of Kendal has a story which extends back to unrecorded eras, an early Roman fortress (AD90), and subsequent Norman fortress show proof of this.

The third biggest built-up area in the county of Cumbria, although in times past part of Westmorland, Kendal's buildings are mainly built of grey limestone, gaining it the nickname "Auld Grey Town". With a resident population of approximately 28,586, Kendal is only a moderate town, whilst the population swells to some degree by visiting tourists who take pleasure in this location. Numerous names have been given to Kendal over the years such as Cherchbi (in the Domesday Book), Kirkbie Strickland, Kirkbie Kendal and Kirkby in Kendal.

A product for which Kendal has come to be widely recognized over the years is Kendal Mint Cake, popular with mountaineers & explorers as a high energy food supplement, & thought to have been stumbled upon unintentionally, three companies still manufacture the Mint Cake at present. Additional trades by which the locals of Kendal have eked out a living over the centuries included the production of wool, shoe making, pipe tobacco and tobacco snuff, it has additionally been a noteworthy market town.

Kendal History: The first construction of any magnitude in the Kendal region was put in place by the conquering Romans at Watercrook in about the first century AD, by way of a fortress. Conflicts between the Romans and a tribe known as the Brigantes, terminated once they began to do trade, until around the 4th century, once the Romans departed.

Much later on a new fort or castle was raised in Motte and Bailey type, although that was superceded by a stone castle soon after the Norman conquest, this was in roughly the twelfth century now known as Kendal Castle, parts still can be visited on Castle Hill. Probably most well known as the home of the Parr family, Kendal Castle has repeatedly been believed to be the birthplace of Henry VIII's 6th wife, Catherine Parr (1512-48), but seeing that the castle was beyond repair at the moment she was born, this would seem not likely.

Kendal was granted a Market Charter in 1189, and the market was always essential for the region ever since those long past days, the charter actually is still in place even now and it allows the town the ability to maintain a Saturday market.
