Monuments and Memorials

Carlisle and its surrounding district has been central in a long and at time 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 Monuments and Memorials PDF Guide  that 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 Cricket Club pavilion at Edenside was flooded in 2005 and 2015. The club has been working on possible options to relocate the pavilion to higher ground on the opposite side. As part of the preparation for the planning application, the club commissioned archaeologists to carry out investigations. 

Following initial archaeology found which uncovered evidence of Roman baths, Carlisle City Council funded extra days for the dig to be extended. The work has uncovered significant archaeology and high quality finds which would not have been discovered without the support of the Council.

The work has uncovered evidence of Roman baths that would have been used by Roman cavalry based at Stanwix.
