Carlisle Through Time

Charlie Emett, James P. Templeton


Carlisle Through Time

In AD 78/80 the Romans under Agricola established a base near the Solway Firth and called it Luguvalium. From that distant beginning it grew to become England’s largest city, stretching to Scotland in the north, the Solway Firth in the west, the north Pennines in the east, and almost to the Lake District in the south. At Cold Fell (2014 feet) it has the largest point of any English city. Carlisle played an important part in being at the centre of the border troubles, and it was the last place in England to know peace.

This fascinating selection of more than 180 photographs traces some of the many ways in which Carlisle has changed and developed in the last century
