Carlisle is the county town of Cumbria. The city lies at the confluence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril and is around 10 miles south of the Scottish border. Carlisle is the largest settlement in the county of Cumbria with an approximate population of just over 107,500 in the wider city.
Carlisle House Prices & Redevelopment
While they have recovered slightly as of late, a report earlier in the year pointed out that house price rises in Carlisle were among the worst in Britain. The slight recovery of house price appreciation has not improved the situation significantly and the outlook in the local housing market still remains somewhat less than positive. Carlisle is intended to soon undergo extensive redevelopment under the auspice of the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Plan.
Carlisle Local Area
Though Carlisle suffered the effects of deindustrialisation common to the rest of Great Britain in the 20th century, most of the city’s industrial sites have been repurposed and serve as light industrial and business parks, the largest of which is Kingstown Industrial Estate on Scotland Road, close to the M6. The Stobart Group haulage firm is a prominent employer in the city.
Notable areas of Carlisle include Kingstown, Lowry Hill, Moorville, Stanwix, Edentown, Etterby, St Anns Hill, Belah, WhiNewtown, Morton, Sandsfield Park, Longsowerby, Raffles, BelleVue, Botcherby, Botchergate, St Nicholas, Upperby, Currock, Blackwell, Durdar, Harraby East, New Harraby, Harraby Green, Old Harraby, Petteril Bank, Durranhill and Carleton.
When the railways arrived in Carlisle, the city became a major railway centre on the West Coast Main Line. Kingmoor, once the largest railway marshalling yard in Europe is still operational, though much reduced in size, and still serves as an important site for railfreight companies such as Colas Rail Freight, Freightliner Heavy Haul and DB Schenker Rail UK.
Carlisle Tradition & History
The principal urban centre and singular city in Cumbria, Carlisle was established as a large and important Carvetii settlement named Luguwaljon before the Romans arrived. Following the occupation, and its spread north during the 1st century CE, the settlement became an important military outpost, signified by the construction of a fort at the conflux of the River Eden and the River Caldrew, the site upon which Carlisle Castle now stands.
Over the next half century Luguwaljon, whose name had become Latinised to Luguvalium, developed from a relatively minor civitas and garrisoned stronghold to perhaps the most important military settlement on the Stanegate frontier. Following the construction of Hadrian’s Wall a new fort called Petriana, the largest on the northern frontier, was built at Carlisle and, though it maintained a garrison, Luguvalium became a less miltaristic and more civilian focussed settlement, principally used for supplying the nearby forts that ran the length of the great Wall.
Following the Roman withdrawal from Britain in the early 5th century Cumbria, and most especially Carlisle, emerged as the principal area of prominence in the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged (which itself was annexed to the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria in 655). By the time of the Norman Conquest, Cumbria had been amalgamated into Scotland, and remained so until William II invaded the area and incorporated Cumbria, and with it Carlisle, into his English kingdom.
He ordered the construction of a castle on the site of the old Roman fort, which began in 1093. It was later built in stone in 1112 and Carlisle Cathedral was constructed in 1133. The remainder of the Mediaeval period saw control of Carlisle change hands during the various Anglo-Scottish wars and the area was pretty much perpetually plagued by the consequences of being a fiercely contended stronghold on the shared frontier of two unceasingly warring nations.
The power of the Reivers grew as a result of these circumstances and it took the best part of a century following the ascension of James I, and the effective unification of the two Auld Enemies, before the reivers ceased to be a problem. Carlisle continued to be a primarily military town, essentially a large barracks, throughout the 17th century, notably suffering a long siege and heavy damage during the Civil War of 1642-51. Even the 1707 Act of Union did not end Carlisle’s military history, even though it effectively stopped it from being a frontier town. The last siege Carlisle was forced to endure took place during the Jacobite Uprisings.
Carlisle’s importance as a military town only declined once the Industrial Revolution arrived. Areas like Wapping, Caldewgate and, most famously, Denton Holme became sites of intense industrial activity as textile mills, engineering works and large food manufacturers began to grow up along the banks of the River Caldrew.
