Monuments and Memorials

Carlisle and its surrounding district has been central in a long and at times troubled history, as a consequence we have so many monuments and memorials that it would be too much to list them all on a web page. So we have provided a downloadable document:

Download your Monuments and Memorials PDF Guide here

The guide lists monuments and war memorials located with the Carlisle City Council geographical area. It is a “work in progress” and will be added to as further information becomes available. 

We hope to provide up-to-date information on the location of the monuments and their purpose. In the document you will find an image of the monument, a brief description, comments on the purpose, the event or person being commemorated, the condition and responsibility for maintenance or ownership.

Further information, corrections to the existing monument information and monuments to add to the schedule would be welcomed

Carlisle City Council set its budget for 2018/2019 last night (Tuesday, 6 February 2018) at a Special Full Council meeting.

The Leader of the Council, Cllr Colin Glover proposed the Executive’s budget. It was seconded by Councillor Les Tickner, Portfolio holder for Finance, Governance and Resources. The Council needs to make savings of £3,475,000 by 2018/19. The Council has successfully achieved/identified over £7million in transformational savings since 2010/11.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Colin Glover, said:
“The challenge of meeting increased demands for services at a time when central government continues to underfund and further cut our resources is a complex and difficult task. We are doing everything possible to protect essential services and invest in the future of Carlisle, with increasingly scarce resources and more aggressive austerity imposed by government. Nevertheless we are determined to invest in the future of Carlisle, with an ambitious programme to deliver homes, employment opportunities and to protect our natural environment. We are supporting more apprenticeships, investing in new sports and leisure facilities and developing our cultural and health and wellbeing programmes.

“This budget aims to deliver an ambitious programme of high quality services and economic growth for Carlisle, where everyone can share in the success of our city."
