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

Local residents, businesses, students and visitors are being given the opportunity to have their say on ambitious new proposals for a new campus for the University of Cumbria at the Historic Citadels and its surrounding area.

Online public consultation takes place between Thursday 14 May and Thursday 4 June 2020.

Whilst the restrictions around non-essential travel and social distancing mean that there can be no traditional face to face consultation sessions, people can instead see the suggested plans and have their say online at www.cumbria.gov.uk/CSGC

The Citadels are a major gateway into the city and are a key part of the history and identity of Carlisle. As part of the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, £50 million of funding has been allocated for the second phase of the Growth Deal to bring new purpose to The Citadels and adjacent site. Phase one included two stages of public consultation in plans to improve Carlisle Railway Station.

Plans are now in place to transform the Citadels Buildings and the adjacent site to become a new home for the University of Cumbria.

The project is being developed jointly by Cumbria County Council, Carlisle City Council and the University of Cumbria working with Cumbria LEP as a key partner. Improving the site can, potentially, be transformative to the character and status of Carlisle and also the wider Borderlands area.

The online survey is available at www.cumbria.gov.uk/CSGC

The deadline for responses is Thursday 4 June 2020.
